rear view mirror

Has anyone ever tried or had done resilvering of a side or rear view mirror? I want to keep the original but it is faded and needs some work. Alternatively, can you buy just the replacement glass.

You can buy the replacement glass from most any automotive glass installation chain. They cut a piece to fit. This is for the door mirrors, never tried to do a rear view personally...

How does the glass pop out? I don't see a way to do it.

For the benefit of others:
There is a giant circlip around the perimeter of the glass that can be pulled out with tweezers or needle nosed pliers.
