Mirrors are always a challenge to make realistic, as in actually reflecting.  Look at glitter, the bigger confetti such as stars, it's clear plastic that is coated on one side like real glass mirror.  I don't know how to track down the original manufacturer of that, other than ask the glitter company in China.  An aftermarket detail company who can get that in sheets would have a popular product.

Oh good, thank you.  I did search 'mirror' before I started this topic.
