NOS G-508/G-506 KING BEE 5" ROUND MIRRORS

Post by RANGER »

To be candid, the GM 608488 factory issue mirror is not worth a damn when used in backing up in subdued light or in a building. If the windows of the closed Cab are rolled up there is a glare problem and it is enhanced by the smoked glass of the mirror. The problem was not evident when used with an Open Cab without doors.
It does not diminish the value of NOS in the Wrapper GM King Bee 5" Round WWII Issue Mirrors though. :wink:
