Looks like this truck (68 fleetside) has never had door mirrors on it. No place where they were mounted before.
Is this normal, and how do I mount new ones (was looking at lmc's door mirrors.)
I did do some google searching and didn't turn up much regarding the fact that there were absolutely zero stock mounting points on this truck.
Cheers. Ecklers

This is not mine I found it on my other truck board.

There is suppose to be 3 holes to mount the mirror base. 68 has the holes drilled as follows.

1. 1/2 in down from body line, 2 5/8 from front edge of door.

2. 1/2 in down from body line, 6 1/8 from front edge of door.

3. 1 1/2 in down from body line, 4 1/2 from front edge of door.

4. Holes are 27/64 in dia.

There should be a backing plate with matching threaded holes to go on the inside of the door.

All measurement are to c/L of holes.

Hope this helps.
