I think this thing may actually work! I have half completed the "Chrome Taping" of the 50 inch Monster Reflector! Reflections looking good. I can shave using this. Basic light tests show; the light paths are lining up well.
I am getting closer to my goal with each new reflector. The distortions aren't too bad on this 50 inch reflector, compared to the 24 inch reflector, with it's numerous flaws.
In these next 4 photos, you can see the initial spray paint mirroring applied for smoothness and flaw inspection, followed by partial chrome mirroring shots.
I have mostly completed the temporary light support hardware and will hopefully have a night time test, the next few nights.
The Silver Spray Paint has been applied
The Chrome Shiny Spray Paint Industry has made huge strides in the "shine-e-ness" of it's product. It doesn't have as bad of a dull shine like it used to.
You can see my hand in the chrome tape
My reflector has come a long way. I will continually improve my manufacturing process.
Partially completed chrome taping of reflector
Here you can see the cutting blade reflection on the chrome tape.
About half the 50 inch Monster reflector is Chrome Taped
You can see the water cooler jug reflection on the half finished application of chrome tape.
I am excited to see this thing work!
