Who is “Caterham Joe”

Hope you don't mind me trying to contact you but I've just watched your (very enjoyable) video on YouTube of the recent Taffia Fish and Chip run an I was impressed by your rear view mirror and I wondered where you got it from?

My email address is: [email protected]

Regards

Dennis

I thought it was a Longacre but they only have a fitting for attaching to a cage whereas "Caterham Joe's" mirror looks like it's attached to the windscreen using suction cups

I think there was a thread on here recently where someone had made some brackets for one of these mirrors that were glued to the glass.  Not found it yet

Edit: realise it was referenced above "your favourite mod"

Hi Dennis,

Im not Caterham Joe, but have been referred to as Caterham Chris  Byebye

Happy to assist as applicable. 

If you like the mirror mount I designed, then I'd be more than happy to share more info including the CAD file if you wanted to have one made.

I should add the mount is for a "Pitking" mirror and it's attached to the screen via two 3M sticky pads.

Hi Dennis, "CaterhamJoe" here! Byebye Glad you enjoyed the video. The mirror is from DemonTweeks but it's the Pitking one not the Longacre one. For the mounts - I used some spare GoPro sticky mounts that I had and some compatible GoPro "J-Hook" mounts. Both can be found on Amazon fairly cheaply. (Links below)

Cheers, Joe
