Replacement side mirror glass

Unfortunate combination of very narrow Baja main highway, a truck driver that wandered across the centre line, a fairly high closing speed, and my failure to react quickly enough resulted in my right mirrow folding back against the back corner of the truck, and both main and convex mirrors breaking.

Anyone know if the glass replacement is still available after all these years?

Thanks

Tony

any glass shop can cut the mirror?
I had posted a note on availability some time back. Look for that thread.

Top mirror is flat so that is no problem - and I already cut a very rough replacement out of one of the many mirrors I took out of the doors in the bathroom cupboards. But I'll see if I can get the genuine bits, especially as the convex mirror is a special anyway and I guess they will have the heating elements on them as well. Not that the heaters get used very often. Both mirrors in mine are tapered, but I guess it will be in those links you pointed me to

Thanks. We are now back in Ecuador in the camper about to head for Brazil and the Airstream is tucked up between two shipping containers in a storage yard in Lancaster so the mirrors will have to wait until we come back in a year or so.
Ran out of time because as well as replacing the dash blower I had to replace the furnace fan motor when it started squealing most of the time instead of just at startup.
