    Does your wife work in an office and have her own desk? Or a desk at home?  Perhaps you could turn it into a business card holder ( card CADDY) or some kind of useful desk decoration for her or yourself.  She will like it that you returned her caring gesture for you by making it a unique item.  Maybe a cool place to park a computer mouse or post it notes.  I'm sure you will think of something nice.

    These have been done in resin but I don't know how well they were done.  The top link will take you to a nice resin kit search site.

    Home Depot sells this kit cheaper than the companies online price.  I ordered one but have not tried it yet.

    Thanks for posting the pics here.  If someone had some nice mirrors to send me I could update my molds to a newer silicone material.  This would include truck mirrors too.  These were difficult to clay up for the mold as they are small parts.  I followed the parts original mold line and would do that again.  That is why they are cast differently per style.  If any one is interested a provision of say four good sets would be sent to you.  I would do other scales too.  I do some custom work for a hand full of clients.  Modelhaus stayed in the 1:25 scale of automotive subjects.  I would do most any scale and subject.  If only I had a much bigger work area and some helping hands.  The work is not hard.  Resin casting is only difficult when some aspect of the process fails, most like anything else.
    I added a photo of the molds that makes the mirrors.  You can move it to this thread if you like.

    Hi Tommy,
      I would prefer an email.  I see I added a D in my address in my above post.  My email is:
    mastercaster1@cox.net
    I kind of like madstercaster, maybe I will change it.

    I was again unable to upload a photo, here is a link to some photos.  The mirrors were loaned to me for the molds some time ago.  I mostly made them for a client in Mesa but I have sold a few sets.   The mirrors of course are delicate and are very fiddly for me to handle.  There is still flash on some.  It is too thick to remove.  They are junk to me.  Be sure to check out the new 63 Bonneville body mold.  My best work yet.

    I purchased a MOD SQUAD kit that was opened and sealed bag for $255.00.  I have purchased several out of print original kits for well over a hundred bucks.  I purchased an original and only issue of the AMT 67 Camaro Pace Car kits for 350.00.  I sent it to my brother who built it as a kid.  He sent it back and I sold it for 380.  I still have one kit for casting purposes.  I need to make a new body mold.  I just completed a new mold for a AMT 63 Bonneville HT 2 dr. body.  I posted photos on our local board of the process.  Probably the best mold I have made yet.   How's that for advertising?

    I actually make those.  I will post a photo later when I get home from work.  Yes, they are tiny but doable in resin.  Just don't ask me to do wire wheels.

    I got my receipt from Paypal with a link to download the magazine.  I get some kind of 404 error and it says the page cannot be found.  Perhaps I have a ID10T  error and I just don't know what I am doing.  My computer is not a very good one either.

    HMMMM.  I purchased one as well thinking I would just go to my start menu and click on downloads and all would be good.  I'm not very computer literate either.  My wife has a degree in computers.  She also just recently earned a PHD in education.  Hopefully my Doctor wife can figure it out.

    I could only wonder how long it takes for them to go through 110 gallons of resin?

    When I spoke to Don he mentioned buying drum sets of resin.  I only wish I had asked how big are the drums and how often do you purchase them.  A drum containing part A and a drum containing part B.  I am still only buying gallon kits.  That makes two gallons of resin.  It will make lots of parts.  A gallon kit is about a hundred bucks.  There is a good profit margin.  Now if I just had a bigger room to work in and more help and more initiative on my part.
