Hope it works Roger.

Acrylic mirror probably isn't good enough for you as it moves a bit and distorts especially when as thin as that. If it comes to it I might be able to find a piece big enough left over from my time in the industry, hopefully not scratched.

The only good thing you'd get from acrylic is that you can fit it curved to make your other half look either thinner of fatter. Get brownie points or a thick ear depending on your circumstances. :lol:

LOL...my other half requires neither as she's perfectly proportioned. Definitely not a fat lass !

Well I've managed to get the mirror out of the frame, the paint on the back protecting the silvering was damaged pulling it away from the glue (silvering was unharmed) so I gave it a few coats of acrylic spray paint and made a template of the right dimensions - hopefully it's good enough and stuck it to the mirror and added PVA all over it to protect it from scratches while it's being worked.

I've also made a foam padded enclosure to transport it, and the cut mirror when complete.

So if someone can wake Phil.P up and ask him to answer my PM with his address before 12.30pm tomorrow I can get it in the post, otherwise it'll be monday :).
