How do you mirror a part but get rid of base part? I want to make a left and right version.

If you want to have left and right versions - why do you want to get rid of the base part?
Method 1 (the correct way)
Start a new file.
Issue the Derived Component command and select the original part.
Set to derive as solid body and set to mirror.
Now you have a mirrored part and the original part.
(there is a shortcut to do these steps from the Manage tab of the original part - but try it this way first.
Do Mirror feature selecting Solid option and then Save Copy As...
Undo the mirror in original (downside of this method is the two files are not associative).
