Just to let you know that despite also being named Riley I didn't figure it out like Region Riley did. I thought that the reflector was also some sort of add on. Maybe calling it a replacement part or some such would clarify for the rest of us.
Ordered two sets earlier today despite my ignorance!

Making the glass available separately would avoid you having to buy another $25 mirror in that event, when all you needed was the glass insert.
Sorry for the confusion!
