Sorry, but that looks like something you would see in a taxi cab in NYC

If you are curious as to how much space it will take up, cut out a 17" piece of cardboard and stick it up where you plan on mounting it. I used the blind spot mirrors with the adhesive backing stuck to my visors for when i am running door less.

i like that idea for the blind spot mirror. what size is it? does it shake a lot while driving? i'm looking for an alternative to mine. i didn't want something that goes in the hinges, b/c i carry soft door with me in case it rains & i still like to have mirrors if i have to throw them on.

i've got a convex mirror (i think it's a little bigger than the blind spot mirror) mounted to some bracket i got @ home depot & it hangs from my roll bar. but due to my cage, i can't get a good angle & it's a little hard to see out of.

I believe it is 3". It is convex and rotates so you can tweak the view angle. Very little shake. I think it cost $2-3.
