LM Vair day / night mirror - Wanted.

My 65 Monza mirror is losing the "silvering' on the back of the glass mirror.
Looking for a nicer one.
Message me if you have something that qualifies.
TIA

The repro parts are crap! I have a repro mirror in my '68 and like most of the repro stuff these days, it is total crap!

Getting a replacement glass cut and installed is the next step.
If someone hoarding a nice one doesn't step up.
Have done that before on a side mirror [ not Corvair - more rare ]

New glass is available for the day/night prismatic mirror?

trying to install new glass into a stainless steel body, is extremely difficult. The mirrors originally had the glass installed first, and then the lip installed to hold the glass in the mirror. There is a company that does sell "repaired" mirrors, however, they glue the glass into place, and after a summer of the interior getting hot, the glass in my mirror fell out. When I called to let them know about it, they were familiar with the problem, and offered to "fix" it if I sent the mirror back. Unfortunately, they only have one glue that they use, so even if I sent it back to be re-glued, I doubt that it would have held up any better over the long haul. That was about 3 years ago, and I just called, and was advised that they have remedied the problem since then. Contact information below. Please read the Google reviews first, and decide then if you want to use her service. One complaint out of 4 makes for interesting reading.

The problem is that the silvering on these mirrors goes bad even if the part has been sitting in a box all of this time.
