How Do I Reattach This Mirror

Looking for suggestions on how best to reattach my convex mirror.


I believe it may have been reattached previously as there is two-sided tape and what appears to be Liquid Steel. The picture of the convex mirror is the back side and appears to be where the adhesives failed.


I was thinking of using a good two-sided tape or epoxy. The mirror is very smooth which makes me think the tape will adhere better after thoroughly cleaning the surface.


Any suggestions on how to remove the Liquid Steel from the mirror housing or should I just leave it and clean it well before applying tape?

I would get the base as clean as possible. Maybe a dremil with small wire wheel but get it clean. Permatex makes an adhesive for this, auto parts store should have. Careful not to ruin back of mirror or better yet see if you could get new.

I have used this for several applications including mounting solar panels to my fiberglass roof in my previous coach. Clean surfaces up and use this tape. It is used to put glass in sky scrapers, etc. Good luck.

TomC-

If that is a Ramco mirror, instructions on repairing/replacing it are here. It is one of several Ramco support documents, available here. I also recommend you call Ramco (if it's their mirror).

If it is a Velvac mirror, instructions for repairing may be available somewhere on this page, or you may have to call Velvac for guidance.

Our 2008 HR Admiral has Ramco mirrors, but that may not be the case on your 2004.

You do have to use adhesive approved for Mirrors, or it will bleed thru the silver
