There was a large batch of Frese mirrors sold recently..
Some alloy and Julian bought a pair...

I bought two pairs of steel ones..
Gave pair to Dave and he ran till he sold the pick up
The purchaser did not like them...fitted elephant mirrors and gave them back to Dave who gave them to Max..
They rusted badly. .Max loves them..
I have a set which will be repainted before use..
I have some other OG ones too
I love them..son hates them..
Wait till he drives the van a lot..
