Default Loose mirror?

I am on my way to rattling this poor truck apart. The glue gave up on me and everytime the bass is up the mirror is flopping around.
I drilled a small hole and stuck the straw in there and hit it with some loctite spray foam. Now it's solid. I went in at the bottom middle. To do again I'd go a little further to the outside edge just to make sure when the foam expansion is happening none drips on the paint. I didn't have an issue going in the middle though. Once it stopped expanding out I trimmed it with a razor and dabbed a little flat black on the foam with a q-tip. Also it goes alot farther than you might think don't put to much in there.
Hope that helps someone with loose mirror glass on a hardbody.
