I was sanding a model body over the kitchen sink and went to wash the sanding residue off when the mirror broke off the driver's door and went down the plughole.
The U bend didn't have an access plug at the bottom, but fortunately the whole U-section was only hand tight, so I was able to unscrew it and retrieve the part. The wonders of modern plastic plumbing!
Feeling MUCH better now!
The car? Toyota Mark II JZX90, 1992-96. This would have been the next Cressida, if they'd kept exporting it.
