Fortunately replacement "flag" style mirrors for these trucks are easy to find and cheap, IF you're not cheap. lol

if "flag style" refers to the little itty, bitty mirrors, then I much prefer the big truck style ones on a truck. I had the little itty bitty mirrors on my '91. I had the big ones on the '85 and the '90. I wouldn't have wanted to try backing up the '91 with a topper on it with those mirrors. Fortunately it didn't have one, but the '90, with the big mirrors was much easier to back up.

you don't need the whole door, just all the glass, run channels, etc.

I thought about converting my doors to wing windows, but I figured working on 30+ year old window internals would end up going badly. Bushings, rollers, etc.. Then there's the issue of getting all of those parts, including large pieces of window glass shipped to me. Then, there's the bondo in my doors...

I need to find a clean set of doors first I suppose, but I'm still hoping to get lucky and find a set that are already set up the way I want, that are also clean enough to be salvaged.
