copying an already mirrored part

I've tried searching for an answer to this, but all I can find is how to mirror a part.  I already have a mirrored part; I want to copy it.

 

I have a mirrored sheet metal part; call it part1m.   It is a mirrored version of part1.

 

Lets say I want to make a copy of part1m.   I go to pdm and choose part1m, and elect to do a pack and go.    I rename part1m and part1 to part2m and part2

 

I then open part2m.   Looking in the model tree, it's still pointing at part1.

 

What did I do wrong?  Is the only way to copy an already mirrored part to copy the original part, and redo a mirror?
