    I think it look awful...but..its certainly different

    Get a mirror cover, best working on an old one from a scrappy..
    and drill/cut through to make the shapes you want
    Sand and file to get nice edges.
    Then add mesh.

    You would have to make sure there is enough room between the cover and the mirror body for the mesh.

    Finally....dont fancy cleaning the flies out !

    if you've got manual mirrors there's plenty of room between cover and mirror body as there's no motor or wiring in there

    agree 500% that it looks bloody awful though!

    I reckon there'd be one hell of an increase in wind noise too

    most from a scrappy will be half off nayway from my exprience

    there's just a few clips go round the sides of the cap, if you're careful you can get a flat screwdriver in and carefully lever them out

    To removed them the easy (safe) way...fold the mirror back and you'll see a small gap at the bottom - stick a small screwdriver in there and careful prise out the bottom edge. Once you've got lifted out, work your way along the bottom and then lift it out at the top
