Looks great and thanks for the heads up on the kit. I haven’t seen them before.

I used the rustoleum cabinet transformation stuff on mine and they turned out great. Much better decision than paint and a lot more forgiving with prep.

you bet, i am approaching the finish line, however i noticed interior side of some of the door panel get some finger stain due to i was holding to put back on the ground after painting. Now I have to wipe down or re-paint again that section. This is after second coat. Do you think repainting 3rd coat like in that sectoin will drastically change appearance from 2nd coat?

Because I am laying down on carpet, I have to do one side at a time to give time to dry for sides that are up, which slows down my progress.

For glaze and finish protective coat, I might do the same.
The tutorial video recommends painting one side and flip over and place over wood with nail protruding which I can do but once the painting is over both side at the same time, how would you lay down? On sides?

They intend for you to have enough nails for all the doors at the same time. Or you could have done one side on all until dry and then do other side. I would just touch up inside, don't forget it is the inside.

OK I just started last coat which is a protective coat. However I notice the coat color is white which is vastly different than the dark red color I am painting. Now I started painting the protective coat and in a short time the white tint fades away on flat sections however the coat builds on corners no matter how thinly I try to apply the coat and it is markedly looks white n colors and boy it is ugly. Any solution to this? Thanks

You have to watch the build up of the clear coat, it will stay white if thick enough.

getting through final stages of it. Supplemented the painting with faux-wood vinyl planks + stainless steel appliances and this is how it looks now.
I bought couple of hinges to try because did not want to use the old ones. The self-locking ones has some kind of rubber wedged between which seem to prevent closing completely. I am bit perplexed on that one, is it supposed to be removed? I find it extremely hard if not impossible to remove. I dont remember something like that in the old ones.
Also there is some kind of metal mount on the left back side of the stove area. I tried to pull out using all my might and there are two medium sized bolts that went straight into the concrete floor. None of them even budges only thing happens is the metal mount itself just bends around. So I had to lay the vinyls around it and can not completely push the range all the way in. Thinking what kind of service I Can call to have it removed.

looks like it is done deal now. The white build up seems impossible to fix, if I try to remove after dry it only made it worse. So I guess I will have to live with it and hoping guests will not notice .

I think you have the quiet close. Just use them as is or at least try a set.
