You're going to have to ship is somewhere. BTW, Concord ? I live in Southern Calif. where there is everything available and I have to drive for 2+ hours if I want to get a mirror to the nearest coater (QSP)! I would suggest that you make a box that accepts the mirror (you should make the box anyway as a storage box) supporting it all the way around with toweling cloth and place several layers of toweling on the top and ship it to a coater that's nearby. You may be able to find one in the phone book that can handle the job but don't count on it. You may as well consider anything in the New England area if you're in New Hampshire as you are less than a day's drive from anywhere there.
