Re: What nightmares could all these mirrors present if taken off?
If you're lucky, they are held on by the clips only. If you're unlucky, mirror mastic was also used which is pretty tough to break loose without breaking the mirrors. Breaking the mirrors isn't that big a deal, unless you have a fear of bad luck , catoptrophobia , or a fear of sharding glass . The former I can't help with, the latter is easily contained with a tarp, old blanket, or even a piece of plywood.
If you choose to go forward and have to break the mirrors, make sure you're wearing safety glasses, wearing gloves, and long sleeves. Have a few boxes handy to place the broken glass into and dispose of it, makes it easier not having to handle it multiple times or risk scattering it as it goes to the garbage can or garbage truck.
