They are mounted back further and more outboard.

If anyone is interested then I will measure them and take photos tomorrow?

Check out the Office Tomitaku car. If there is going to be a car that is correct it will be this one.
If you look at the pictures the mirrors are much further outboard, basically next to the fold on the pannel. They are also further back about 3" is my guess. If you look at a side on shot of a genuine car they are back behind the leading edge of teh tyre.
Does anyone have a car with factory delivered fender mirrors that can measure this for us, or still has the fender mirror mounting plat mounted under the front of the guard. Any '69 or '70 model will probably still have these.

Main things to know are:
- Distance to the front of the guard
- Distance from the engine bay side of the guard
These would be best measured to the centre of the large hole (middle one) on the mounting plate.
