  23. Flip the mirror over so that the frame is making contact with a level surface and cover both sides of the assembly with some towels. Look for something that weighs around 5-10 lbs and set on top of the assembly. Leave this alone for a few hours so that the RTV has adequate curing time and then you can reinstall the mirror into the car.
