Looks like all the parts are in the same layer, make sure you have the option to merge points off. Or have the parts in a different layer, or mirror each part on it's own.

most of the stuff is in its own layer. it's almost like once it crosses the Y axis it gets screwed up.

Yeah, because merge points is selected in mirror tool. If not, any point that shares the same space as another, will be merged.
