Repurposed vintage automobilia salvage mirrors

Here is the finished project---I love the muted orange and rusty patina---and the overall industrial look.

These old truck/auto/bus (?)  light bezels just shouted 'mirror'!

So with just a few materials (an old electronics cable, epoxy and  some 8" mirrors from the craft store) and several days of patience waiting for different stages of glue to dry-- it was a fairly easy project.
The rubber cable was cut and adhered around the opening to provide a gasket cushion and also a better surface to then glue in the mirror (I like the reliability and strength of epoxy for most projects).
Some of the seemingly easiest projects can turn into lengthy, small detail challenges....but luckily not this one!

I love this! It's really unique and industrial is right up my alley these days.

Those are really neat. Great idea! They would look great on a gallery wall!
