Interesting mods so far! Keep 'em coming.

After creating the original mod, I wanted to improve it so I also tried using a small mirror with velcro. As long as the mirror isn't heavy or is thin enough, I think velcro will be ok. My mirror was too heavy and there was some play on the between the two velcro connections, so the mirror would sag and flash would shoot more forward. (half the picture would be bright white instead of bouncing the flash totally at the ceiling)

My English is not the best, I hope you will understand me. Try touching the tape and see is it crabbed. This can happen if you glue it more than it takes. Try using super glue (Loctite) on the mirror, and some elastic glue on flash. Use softer side of velcro for the flash.
