Grand (Am) Savings

"Is there anything you can do about my mirror?"

I'd dealt with this travesty of the auto manufacturing industry before, though most of the time the mirror itself cracks or just falls off. And the car dealer says "No, you can't replace just the mirror, you have to replace the whole $250 assembly". This particular time the flimsy plastic bosses that support the heavy mirror decided to crack at the most inopportune moment. Dangling for some time like a broken appendage, it was time to do something about it.

I'd tried using super glue and/or epoxy, but those solutions were either too messy or didn't cure quite right. This time, I decided to try a different tack - what about attaching it from the other side?

It's not pretty, but it's really sturdy. And will likely pass muster when inspection time rolls around.

"You're so smart" is all Marille said, which brought a smile to my face.

I call it inventive.
