Painting & Wallpapering/Geneva Kitchen Steel Cabinets

Question
I love my white Geneva Steel Kitchen Cabinets from the 1950's but they need to be repainted.  I can't find someone to electro paint them.  Do you have any ideas?  I would hate to roll paint on their beautiful shiny doors.  Thank you.

Answer
I would definitely not use traditional acrylic or oil based enamels. These are the type of jobs I enjoy because those cabinets were so well thought out and easy to dismantle and finish if you are careful. I would try to find someone who has a passion for cabinets and see if they can use an automotive finish or conversion varnish on them. Best of luck!
