My 1418 Mercedes Benz does not have the four short stainless steel strips that are near the headlights as in the photo. I would also like to buy a westcoast mirror with the yellow Chevrons as in the photo. I know I may have to search the wrecking yards but I thought I would try here first.

No, paint but when new was bright. The mirrors were Wabco, Westco (?) brand and fitted ex factory on many Whites.
Edit: maybe Wibroc.

Maybe just buy some standard ones and some of the right colour reflective tape and make your own.

Probably not Wibroc. Here is their range from back in the day. Pretty sure LN700 and Geoffa have it with Chevron.

If you can’t buy the chrome strips. Buy a roll of chrome moulding from ebay. If you live in Sydney I can give you enough to do the job.
