    Hi lugnutt, it looks like you may get away with fitting new mirrors-try local glass shop or buy larger mirrors and cut to size

    Hi Lugnutt, What an absolute bummer. Had you lent it out or did somebody break in ?

    I think Terr'ys plan is a good one, talk to a glazier, they will sought it in a flash. Has there been any other damage done ?

    Bad luck Dave. If its just the glass call a glazier. My son is a glazier and he would have that fixed in a jiffy.

    I would think about £20 each bit of mirror glass and a couple of quid for silicon to fix in place :thumb:

    you were very lucky it was only the mirrors.....could have really trashed it in no time at all.

    take the doors to a glassiers if possible...mirror glass is very hard to cut, once silvered, without the edges of the reflector flaking off, and ask them to size and cut.
    at extra cost they will also bevel the edges or even etch the glass.

    go to lion picture framing wholesalers in birmingham they have web site for address and get the 2mm mirrorglass you need to repair the damage the shitbags have done it is easy to cut if you have a glass cutter the doors may even take stock size
