Hi,

I think Gareth (RD Trucking) sells them, drop him a PM.

But I made my own, just got some 1.5mm clear sheet and traced around the old ones, cut them out, drilled a few holes, bit of clue and the result........

They look amazing I was going to look at doing it that way but wasnt sure if a gap would be left as the original are raised to fit the recess of the cab but looking at yours it looks amazing

There is no gap on the end, just sits flush with the body.
I place a few drop of glue on there to hold them in place, and used the 2 mounting points on the door mirrors.

Just use the mirrors to hold the side windows in.
