Finally finished the turn signal rear view mirrors:


I've got to say, while I'm definitely happy with the final product, I can't recommend this mod for anyone. While it's cheap ($40), the labor to install is ridiculous. True, I know someone with better familiarity with running door wiring will be much faster, I wound up having to tear down both mirrors and rewire their motors to work properly with our controls. On top of that, the mirrors are quite small, but worst of all, the passenger side mirror is slightly concave an produces a 'zoom' effect. This makes the field of view too small, amplifies vibration and makes lights behind you brighter at night. Very cheap despite the improved overall appearance of the car with these.
