I've been itching to get some JDM turn signal mirrors, I like the look much more than the aftermarket set I'm currently running. Unfortunately, I never see a complete set for sale so I'm trying to make the next closest I can.
I found a similar sized aftermarket LED on eBay. It has a bit of give to work with the curve of our mirrors and the flat wiring fits right in the lower seam of our mirror shrouds:


Had to add a little adhesive and tape it temporarily to keep the corners down:


In the end, it's near factory and only obvious within a couple of feet that it's aftermarket; probably not noticed at all by someone who doesn't own a subaru:

Could've made it more flush no? Looks no easier to do than buy some at walmart with double sided tape and slap em on. :/

These are essentially 3M taped too. I've considered a few different ways to make flush lights and next to this the best option would be to buy real markers and cut them into the back. I think for even someone quite good at custom fits that's going to be much harder to get a clean look.
One option is to remove the 3M tape and use your own adhesive; I'm considering redoing these and it would cut off 2mm.

Are those covers with lights that just stick on top of the whole back of your stock mirror?

What about a full circle/oval with a mesh behind it? You could use black gutter mesh from Home Depot.

Then it would look like all the over mesh covers out there, I dislike those.

I like your idea , I say go for it, different and unique!

^ Pics don't work. Try "img" instead of "url" in the brackets on both ends of each picture link.

Yes. Which is why I was very disappointed. The covers have a hole cut for the light so it flush mounts. The idea is you used double sided tape to adhere the light to your factory mirror, then the included cover fits over making it seem OEM. I have plans to mild the cover in, or maybe just cut the factory covers to fit the lights.
