True so very true, i was restoring my bus some time
ago, after paint i could'nt see using some if not most
of the original exterior parts i had, ie. mirrors,
lenses, side markers etc. old did'nt match the new

without asking others where to buy, or what has worked
and was close to NOS, i jumped the gun, considered my
budget and bought all after market crap. The mirrors
were total garbage, but still to me they looked new,
although instead of being chrome they were more like
stainless and cheap to say the least as was all the
plastics i bought. Never the less i used them, but
have learned if your going to buy parts and really
dont have the budget at the moment, buy good used or
NOS parts and buy half of what your budget will allow
and buy the other half down the road..

example my aftermarket mirrors for my bus were $14
each where the NOS were $28, my reasoning was I can
get two mirrors for the price of one.. WHAT A JOKE !!!

lived and learned,
