Newbie with a mini one - help please?

Hi, So i bought my mini one r53 at a discount as a few parts where missing. handbrake and wing-mirror caps. I've managed to find a make-shift handbrake cover but does anyone know where i could find black wing mirror caps?

Bought some from wing mirror car door mirror UK which were a terrible fit - one was too big, the other too small, tragic!

Anyways, would love some help in finding a pair that will fit. I'm also willing to travel to collect a decent pair.

There are loads ofspecialist Mini breakers. As Sean says, go onto eBey and in parts search on 'brbreaking mini' or similar. You won't have to travel, they'll post.
It is easy to break the clips that holds the backs on. This guide might be useful:
