Taking some measurements. Looks like -15 is about max with out them sticking out and looking like a drift boy,

 

Last shot is the wheel back side that goes right in to my caliper. Problem.

The back face of that wheel looks pretty shallow. You're running a custom Klotz setup to 5 lug, aren't you? What calipers?

 

Also, nice socks, bro.

Leave the socks out of it.lol

 

No i am not running MKLOTZ, all being re drilled. Will do a whole new rear end some time in the near future. And it will be a 17x8 if anything. I believe a -15 is about all you can go with out the rice boy drift look. I dont want that.

I can see that the mounting shaft on the mirror is a stock unit.  What did you do to get the mirror body so nice?  Is it just a really nice OEM one that's been painted.  It's plastic, so it can't be powder coated.  Is the mirror glass just glued in?  Got a pic of the back side of the mirror body?   It came out really nice! Great work!

They are an Everwing brand, nos, made in Japan. Not specifically for a 521 but exact same mounting cup/ball, black plastic.

Thanks guys!  I googled Everwing brand mirrors and found an ebay listing for $159! Ouch!  Are they all that expensive?  Maybe I should start designing a replacement. LOL  The stalks always survive....just the mirror piece dies.

I paid $110 shipped from Thailand for mine.   

 

And yes you should.

The same mirror was used in couriers and Mazda mini trucks just different brackets.
