      I was painting my F40 mirrors and was missing one mirror and found the perfect replacement as good as the real thing.
      A disc from inside a harddrive, they are aluminium and can be cut to fit, 1,0 mm thick.

    What did you use to cut it?

    Now I wish I had those bad drives I pitched.

    I use an old dentist machine and a cut-off wheel like these: Foredom Electric Co. - Cut-Off Wheels, Slitting Discs
    I recommend using some tape to protect the disc to avoid scratches on the part you cut out.
