i needed reflectors for a 8 lamp 3xODNO, (so 32 ft of reflectors) there was no way i was paying 20-40 for ea 4 ft refletor...so for my current project i'm making some reflectors out of 4" pvc (thin wall smooth sewer pipe 2"-4" would work i got the 4" cheap), slice them in half longways, and glue in a 1/2"x1/2" or so triangle (wood would work i'm using plastic) as a restrike deflector, then fine sand the insides (talking about starting at 500grit and working thru 2000 then using 000 and 0000 steel wool), until you have got them really smooth. then prime them with a plastic adhesion type paint (krylon fusion or rustolem's plastic paint), i'm using white for the primer. last i'll spray them with hi-grade crome paint (like the stuff you get in a auto body shop)to get them looking like a mirror...
