Default side repeaters scuttle mounting ?

Hi guys,

I've also tried to post this on lcb but it do sent seem to be working..anyway

I've set my heart on mounting my repeaters on the scuttle as I hate the way they look on the front arches. I've heard of people getting failed at ia having them scuttle mounted. I've had a look at the manual and from what my untrained eye can gather the biggest obstical will be the rear arch getting in the way of the angle of visibility. So I've sort of concluded that if I mount the repeaters high enough up on the scuttle I shouldn't have an y problems? Or am I mis interpreting something?

Any ideas/thoughts welcome

Cheers Dan

There must be a set of mirrors out there with e marked indicators fitted that can be seen from the correct angle behind the car???

This comes back to the tester at the time as like the MOT it varies even though there is a written set of rules they all seem to read it differently to "Normal folk".....

I've also got clear e marked ones as well, all this interpretation stuff is doing my head in. I,m thinking of going down the route of mirrors with in built repeaters. Anybody know of a supplier?

Sounds like a good idea to me, two birds and one stone come to mind. A supplier is not the main problem its finding one that looks right on the car, I spotted one on an hgv the other day so that one can be crossed off the list.
