Observation Window

Has any one ever had a hole cut in your entry door so you can see the curb or is their a company that makes entry doors with an Observation window in it for my 2003 HR 40 PST.
This is for my wife so she can park easier.
Thanks for your help

Jim, I added a fresnel lense to the door window and a truckers door look down mirror. I can now see the front passenger side corner of my 08 Dynasty and even if the steps are out from the drivers seat. It also eliminated the blind spot.

Attached is my view from the drivers seat.

Our Tiffin Phaeton has a window at the bottom of the entry door. It is useful.

I bought the mirror maybe 8 years back and honestly don't recall where I bought it but I do know that I googled it and picked the largest one I could find with a chrome exterior cover that would also articulate up down right left. I bolted it through the upper part of the door window frame.

Unfortunately I won't have access to my files until June. If you can't find one you like, let me know and I'll dig up where I bought it when I get back.

The fresnel lense I purchased off Amazon.
