    Regarding the double glass door on the micro wave oven, I have been told this is a sealed unit and not to be tampered with. I have been thinking about getting a mirrored like contact paper and just covering the glass panel. So far haven’t been able to locate contact paper of that sort. Any suggestions would be appreciated
