Installed a flat glass right hand drive drivers side mirror on passenger side of left hand drive XKE…
Mirror Glass Plus ( https://mirrorglassplus.com ), Item #3044, replacement convex glass installed over the flat glass.
No passenger side mirror was installed on the left hand drive XKE Series 3 Jaguar.
Drivers side “inclosed” mirror is somewhat unique (see photo #1 & #2).
Searched for years, finally found a right hand drive drivers side mirror on ebay, BUT, as expected, it has plain glass. Since there were no passenger side side mirrors, a convex mirror is quite difficult to find.
A convex “spot” mirror can be affixed to the flat mirror, but is rather kludgey (see photo #3).
So… While convex fender mirrors are an option, since I had mounted the mirror on the right side (matching the mirror mounted on the left side), I really wanted to find a convex mirror glass that is a similar size and shape to the flat glass (see drawing #1).
Not easy, since all the mirror “shops” I have found sort their mirror glass by the vehicles year, make, and model, and… the XKE is not included.
After months (actually years) of searching, I finally found a match. To the rescue comes:
Mirror Glass Plus ( https://mirrorglassplus.com ), Item #3044, that fits a 1978 to 1983 American Motors Concord. Mirror Glass Plus has the dimensions of each replacement glass and a rendition of the shape on their site, so after searching every car make and model manufactured during the past 50 or so years, I could estimate a fairly close match. I ordered it ($24.99); real glass, excellent quality, perfect match.
Note all the various shapes available for that make and model. Item #3044 matches the shape and size of the XKE Series 3. The convex glass “sticks” right over the existing flat glass. Fits perfectly (see drawing #2).
Jaguar and American Motors. Who would have thought!
