Unfortunately quake putty does not work. And these things will fly if you grip them the wrong way with your tweezers.

Woops, that doesn’t look right

That doesn’t look right either. I can live with it.

Hmm, now I can’t fit it back in the blister. Time for a lighter and needle to melt a hole in it.

Opps, I broke it off while trying to put it away. At least I can fix it this time. Oh wait, Oh no! I chipped the paint!

This doesn’t look good.

Oh well, I always display from this side anyways

May as well grab the silver Sharpie

I give up, you’re going straight in the display case and not into the box again where you’re gonna lose your mirror again

Okay, it’s Monday, I have time to #makeitfit

And some glamour shots before I find a permanent place for you in the Tomica display

And before I forget, Merry Christmas LaLD!
