I wouldn't put them that far forward. They look best when behind the centerline of the front wheels.

I've put fender mirrors on three roadsters - the best location is in the hole for the antenna - then match the location on the other side.

Any further back and they are not really usable. Any further forward and they get in the way when you are working under the hood.

Here's the mirrors on my '67.5 - they are just a bit too far back.

I am planning on doing this as well... I never liked the mirrors on the doors. They keep that classic Japanese look when they are on the fender. Post some pics when you work it out. I am likely doing one square mirror on the driver's side. I have considered twin bullet mirrors, but I am not sure how that would look. Anyone have any pics of that?
