What type/kind of side view mirrors to use when doors are off

What type/kind of side view mirrors to use when doors are off.

Should I bolt some to the fenders or use the existing door hinge to bolt to?
Any suggestions would help.

I'd never drive doorless On road as they're integral to side cash protection. Rather, they're the only side crash protection
Remembering that, figure out how to put some Harley mirrors on or something at the hinges.

Depending upon where you're at, it's illegal even with mirrors. around here you'd probably make it a block or two before you got a ticket.

Well I live in Charlotte NC, The law doesnt say anything about no doors, but it does say you have to at least have a driver side mirror

Then why not take all 4 doors off and the liftgate? Remove the seats and put in a wooden bench instead, secure with deck screws...
