Full Doors & Windshield Lighting

I was planning on putting windshield lights on the side. But I realized with the side mirrors, that the mirrors may hit the windshield lights. Has anyone else experience something like this before?

If so, I'm sure I could probably get shorter straps so that the doors don't open all of the way.

vin you can adjust the mirror brackets if you want them close to the door of far out like wings...

As for the shorter straps. DO NOT hook them where the straps are sown together. They will rip

You can also get the brackets for the lights that also hold the mirrors. This way you can take the doors off and still have mirrors. I think JCWhitney has them. It is a combo bracket for lights and mirrors on the windshield.

Yeah I noticed Quadratec just started carrying them. I'm not sure about re-locating my sidemirrors. They look like a pain in the but to remove haha.

Vin the mirrors are easy, all you do is remove one nut and then 3 more bolts that hold it to the door and they are off. The only problem is with the relocation brackets you will not be able to see the passenger mirror with the doors on.

Relocating the mirrors take half an hr.
