I've had the brackets made by Rowlesy and got them powder coated although you can just spray them up if you want. I bought the Bearmach type Defender mirrors off of eBay for £28 posted - here's a couple of pics:

Cheers for the tip off, and 300CE and others for the info, think I will make my own brackets, ordered some mirrors today.

another tip that some people do or dont is dont fit both mirrors at 90 degrees. on the landrover 90's/110's the passenger side is pulled back to the 45 degree position to get a closer perspective of the whole side of the truck and the road.

mine on the doka and now the twin slider are fitted this way and i can see from the rear wheel up to the fresh air vent and of course the road and path down that side.

feel free to message me if you have any problems :D

Hi all,
This is my first post, so please be gentle with me.
My T25 is suffering from crap door mirror syndrome, I am wanting to replace them with the defender mirrors mentioned.
Please would someone tell me how I purchase the brackets from rowsey,assuming they are still available.
I have ordered the mirrors.
Many thanks.
