Default Applying piano black finish help

Hey

My box construction is nearing an end and have to start planning on box finish, I have chosen, I want a piano black finish

I have googled on it and looked every where, I have found little info but not enough to satify my hunger and need.

Could some one pls, explain step by step or lead to a page explaing my exact situation

..My box is pure 25mm mdf board,----what now, I have a faint idea but would like to be told the correct way

Thanks

Heres a pic of my subwoofer insides

hope you like sanding...



Sand, fill, sand, fill, sand, sand, prime, sand, prime, sand, prime, sand, sand, sand, paint, sand, paint, sand, paint, ad nauseum...

The process is so involved, but with few different steps, I did it on a box of mine, but after the effort would NEVER do it again.

Get a auto paint shop to do it is my suggestion. (unless you have a nice paint booth and patience)

If you pay them they will do whatever you want. But just remember, it's going to be expensive - better get Maaco - lol.

yup

You might cheaper to go to an autobody shop.

You need a quart of this, this, that, and that, quart prices suck.

Have you sprayed before? If not, is it in your life-master-plan?
