mirror relocator brackets

I tried to search and it wasn't working for some reason

So I got pulled over for not having a mirror on my left side and ended up spending the night in jail (thread in GD)

Are there any brackets that also work as windshield frame armor?

If not what are the best brackets. I would like to just use harley mirrors if possible. I would stick them in the door hinges but when I have my soft doors on I can't.

Having fog light mounts would be a plus.

sorry for the repost

Just read your thread in GD. Great story lol ;P

If you still wanted to the relocation route the Rugged Ridge relocation kit is nice. The install was a bit of a PITA, but I heard they've improved on it since I got it 2 years ago.

tip... the first time you put them on- before you do so, put silicone sealant in between the aluminum disc (it screws onto the part that mounts to the body).

Reason is that the disc tends to rotate back when going above 40mph. But if you put the sealant on there before hand, then the silicone provides enough friction to prevent it from being pushed back by the wind. But it's not enough friction to prevent you from moving/adjusting it.
