Snorkel with Mirror Relocation Brackets

Has anyone done this? I have mirror relocation brackets I love, but its time for a snorkel. I am not sure if there is any way to have both or if I need to figure out something new for my mirrors.

I use the door hinge motorcycle mirrors and that won't interfere with a snorkel. Which brackets are you using?

It can be done you just need to be a little creative You can use the stock mirrors if you take them apart and make 90' brackets. The mirror spring, base plate, and nut can be re-used. It only costed me time to do this mod since I had the metal laying around for the brackets. It works with doors on too you can still see the mirrors clearly. The snorkel plate that attaches to the upper windshield hinge is behind the brackets.
