Topic tags/keywords: mdf mirror like finish

I am building some garage cabinets out of MDF. I would like to make them look like metal with a mirror like finish. I have an hvlp gun and would like to use it instead of roll all the layers. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Pete

I have seen both. I don’t want to use spray cans. Is there something showing what I should do with mt HVLP sprayer.

Why don’t you just adapt those tutorials to an HVLP?
