    Hi all. I need to source a replacement mirror for a 4x5 Polaroid MP4 reflex viewer. Any ideas on where I can find this? Thanks!

    Google first/front surface mirror. You will get a load of them.

    I'm headed to a local glass shop here in town. Hopefully they have first surface glass. If they only have regular mirror glass, should I not go with that? Is the type of mirror critical? Thanks for the help!

    Turns out I had the glass I needed. Also answered my own question on the importance of front surface glass. It is a MUST!

    Thanks for the help John!!
