Unhappy From bad to worse - mirrors

Okay, so I've had my '87 Graduate for a couple of years. Its been a slow restoration but it's still my pride and joy. When I bought it, the driver's side mirror housing was cracked, but not too badly and still usable while higher priority items took my attention.

Well this last week, I move a boat and you guessed I I broke the passenger side mirror. Now driving with both mirrors taped up is just wrong. However I can't find new or used replacements anywhere. Even International Auto (the mainstay source of part so far) doesn't have them.

Does anyone have any suggestions where I can find proper replacements? I'm on a budget so price is always a concern, but a source is even more important.

Thanks for any suggestions

For used parts, try Alfa Parts Exchange in California: www.apedirect.com. The inventory listed on the site isn't updated often, so I'd give them a call. Good luck, and post pics of your pride-in-progress!

purchase the stainless-steel aftermarkets. they are far sexier and theyre cheaper too. like 30$ a piece in IAP catalog or centerline.
