I am trying to learn how to post correctly with pictures added to the post. Instead of linking to a pdf file. So this is just a repeat of the pdf file. Thanks for understanding. 17Racer

My question really did not yield much in the way of results. The Chevy 2014 came with side mirrors that look like this.

The convex mirror is kind of small at 3 inches. So searching was done on the internet but just could not find a 5-6 inch convex mirror with an offset mount. And that was what was in mind for me to use. So we have Pep Boys, Auto Zone and Advance Auto and they all had the same 5 inch mirror with the last store having 2 in stock. They have an 8 mm offset mounting screw. And cost was under $10 per mirror.

Now some brackets needed to be made to hang them just below the flat regular mirrors. Made out of some angle aluminum and shaped and drilled to fit. Used all stainless steel fasteners and painted the parts white. Used a piece of shelving liner to help in the mount to have good even contact. After making the mounting brackets and clamping in place to make sure the convex mirror would position ok, the 2 holes were drilled in the main mirror housing for the two 10-32 screws with fender washers and lock nut.

Here are 2 pictures with the mounting bracket installed.

The new 5 inch convex mirror gives me a much better view on both driver and passenger side.

And the arm still closes without touching the door. Also gave it the door slam test and it looks rock solid. The mount and convex mirror only have a total weight of less than 8 ounces so the mounting is plenty strong. Well there are probably plenty of ways to get similar results but this is how I got what I wanted.
