Probably the easiest is just to find a local junkyard, ask if they
have any 5000's, and pull one off; they're pretty easy to
remove(everything's under that plastic cover with the 1 small
phillips screw holding it in place.)

If you happen to find a post-89 type 44, you can snatch the
wide-angle mirror too(later models use a different retaining
mechanism to hold the glass.)

Hope this helps,
