Hay all, I'd like to get my rear view mirror and visor mirror re-silvered.  I've checked locally, and none of the glass shops will do it. I've also looked on Google, can anyone recommend someone they've used and gotten great results?
Thanks!

Have a '72 and the mirror was badly de-silvered.  Just replaced it with a new one from Corvette America.  Fits good and looks identical to the original.

I'd recommend just getting a new mirror also unless you have a mirror with the map light in it. Mine did on my 74 but I couldn't find any with the light, in that case, if you want to stay all original then you will have to continue searching. Good luck.

Thank you! I'll give Joyce a call. The visor was missing so I found an original (no lights) on EBay but it needs re-silvered. The rear view isn't bad, I just though that since I need to get the visor done, might as well get both done.
