Re: replacing mirrors in bathroom
I hope you are doing well. It has been some time since we had a drink together.
About three years ago, I replaced the bathroom mirrors on Cream Puff. I also replaced the medicine cabinet mirrors. For the cabinets, I used Plexiglas mirrors and for the walls, glass was used. If you use glass, it is best to treat it with a product such as this to make it shatterproof: https://www.purlfrost.com/safety-security-window-film-stickers/glass-safety-window-film/. This can be added at the store or by the person who sells you the glass mirror.
Ours were not adhered to the wall. This makes me wonder if the previous owner had replaced them prior. It was a pretty easy project. To fasten the mirrors, I used the mounts already in place. Perhaps I should have also used double sided tape.
With best regards,

The mirrors in the bathroom of my A54 back cabin don't look
good anymore. Because I have some spare time due to the virus, I decided to
replace them here in Trinidad. Does anyone have experience in removing the
existing mirrors? They seem to be glued to the wall. The local guy who helps
here suggests to put the new mirrors back with a thick tape that has glue on
both sides plus 4 screws. Same here, does anyone have tips how to attach the
new mirrors the best possible way?
