Bumblebee Side Mirrors

Has anyone had a discussion about the exagerated side mirrors used on Bumbleebee and the feasability of recreating them? That is simply one of the coolest parts of the car IMHO.

I wondered the same thing. It really is the only major difference. Would be awesome, I could drive close to the sidewalk and cut people in half. Seriously though Ive wondered the same thing.

My refinance guy based in California told me his buddy got some in a place called K2 motorsports. I think the website is k2motorsports.com. He said they were like $500 and made a big difference. Hopefully this helps.

I'd definitely add them to my car if they were available. I think they completely change the look of the car.

I don't think the concept mirrors will pass state inspection. . .

I think it was federal. I looked up MTO rules in Onatario and kit car sideview mirrors have to be a minimum of like 4" of height in the mirror surface.

little preview what comes as next ,
attention this is only the model for Test fit on the Car. Have it paint flatt black and put an mirror vinyl on, only for an Looking Test. it looks good or not.
If this will fit i make the Molds and build the first Fiberglass Parts. I only must Look what Motors will fit in the mirrors. Mirrorlass i think i can order by an Glass shop .


The size of this mirrors is bigger than the Conzept ones, its nearly the OEM Camaro size, only in the high its smaller, so i think (hope) i can see enough from the Street behind my

here the Pics.
Attached Images

Leave it to Blacky to figure out to how to turn the Camaro back to concept specs. Hey Blacky why is it always raining out there in Germany? Every picture your Camaro is getting rained on! lol
