Rock-solid build plate pad upgrade for Replicator 2 Now with Ninja Sauce

Ninja Pleeeze! A slight silicone modification.
Dr. Thomas, you are my metric. You make me want a bike (oh and print better :)).
I went to my local hardware store, which, for the record is Lowes and they are great to me. I saw a 3m pack of pads that looked attractive and picked them up. I just followed suit w/ the biggest flattest silicone pad there was and slathered it in ninja sauce.
I must confess there is one variable that is not default. I use a glass build plate.
I like this because I believe the silicone will give up less z over time, it loves my glass and I don't run the risk of a random piece of fuzz catching some mystical Rep2 thermal and ending up gliding into the print job.
Included is an 200micron whpthomas surface test image and file. First piece plucked off the plate.
