@johans In the midst of the Holidays, found difficulty getting in touch with them. Was hoping to find an answer on the forums in the meantime.
Got in touch with them today, for future users with a similar question: Grey Mirropane reflective material is attached on the frontside of the glass. So mounting to the backside with 3M VHB is a go 👍 Asked for alternative mounting materials, and they said 3M VHB is what they use as well.
Hey guys, I am planning on building my first magic mirror and was wondering what is your preferred mirror? I wanted to get some suggestions from the community so I can make an informed purchase! I would appreciate it!
@bkeyport Yes… I reloaded Buster and it works just fine… thanks all for the help… I was going to try Jessie but couldn’t get it downloaded. The download kept failing right at the end of the download… So then I tried Buster. You guys are a godsend when we have problems… The question is who do the experts go to when the experts have problems they can’t figure out?? Hope you all have your experts you can rely on or maybe you don’t have problems you can’t figure out… All have a Merry Christmas and a great 2022…
