Re: blind zone stuff, any input?
If you have a type 44, go to a junkyard and pull off the passenger
side mirror from an 89 model up. They have a convex mirror instead of
the older flat mirror. This is an upgrade I would recommend to any
89 or older type 44 owner!
The other thing that helps prevent the collisions these people talk
about is to monitor where vehicles are. I usually know where all the
cars are around me, so there are few surprises when a car pops out of
my blindspot. What does irritate me is when I -know- one is in my
blind spot and I want to change lanes :)
