Serving the United States since 1983
We have experience doing rearview and carbide light mirrors from collectible cars: Ford, Jaguar, Aston Martin, Datsun, Pierce-Arrow and many more. Flat, concave and day/night mirrors can all be resilvered and improved through our process. We use grey backing paint and can either paint the edge of your rearview mirror or leave it clean.

Your mirror will be resilvered by hand.
Mirrors like those in old dressers, hand mirrors, bathroom vanities, etc., have a thin layer of solid silver that provides the reflective surface. Silver oxidizes as it ages, but because it is well sealed, that process takes 60-80 years before the mirror really starts to show darkness, spotting, haziness, or any of the other ways that mirrors can degrade. Resilvering is simply a maintenance process, like changing the oil in your car engine, but with very long time intervals.

In order to refresh the reflective surface, all the old coatings need to be removed and the glass can then be prepared for a new coat of silver. Note that any stamps, special painting or other coatings applied to the glass do not survive this process. When the mirror is done, it will have a new reflective coating that should last for decades.
