Linking Notes from Mirrored parts

(This could equally be in the weldments or parts forum)

I've mirrored a weldment part and created a drawing.
First point is the two parts need unique part numbers. Second point is linking the the mass/weight property to a drawing.

To get over the first point I added the PartNo. property to the configuration custom property. (you may ask why I did not change the number in the bill of materials options - I did, but I can not find a way to link this number to anything other than the BOM, which is another issue).

I tried to add a weight property to the custom configuration but it returns 'fromparent+' in the drawing. Any ideas how to get around this (apart from typing in the weight as a text value?).
