Mirror Guards for Pinto


Dave C

Recommended Posts

I am looking for mirror guards to fit to my 2007 Autocruise Pinto, on an Iveco Daily base vehicle. This vehicle was built before the Swift takeover.

 

Has anyone got (or had) a Pinto?

 

Any advice welcome.

 

Thanks

Can't say I've heard of a Pinto, heard of a Mustang, I don't think Mirrorguards do one for the Iveco, although they do a set for the earlier (pre-X250) Ducato.

Saw these on E-bay :

Bit cheaper than 'mirrorguards' too. Ray

The Pinto was a relatively compact overcab design built in 2006/2007 and adverts suggest most had auto-gearboxes.

I’m not aware that anyone has made protectors for Iveco Daily mirrors similar in concept to the “Mirror Guard” type. The target market for that type of protector is motorhomes and only a tiny percentage of all motorhomes has been Iveco Daily-based. The ebay link Ray provided relates to guards for Iveco truck mirrors and unlikely to fit on a Daily.

 

It may be that a complete replacement mirror for a 2007 Daily won’t cost a fortune and, if that’s the case, it might not be worth buying (or manufacturing) guards. As the standard Daily mirrors were black and fairly inconspicuous, painting them white might reduce the risk of them becoming damaged.

Thanks Ray - the Pinto seems to be quite a rare MH, I've never seen another, apart from the odd advert!

 

Derek - thanks for your response (do you work for MMM, as you seem to be very knowledgeable and answer most questions on here?) I have noted your comments and will put some reflective tape on the mirror casing to make them a bit more visible.

 

Yes, the Pinto is a rare beast but we love it, just the job for the two of us. Plenty of Iveco Daily's about, at least two of our local supermarkets use them for home deliveries.
