at $70/gallon, Duratex is still a bargain,
however, wrt to MDF edges, they really really suck . . . paint..
Kilz in a rattle can can do wonders for the raw rounded over MDF, several light coats with some sanding after the 3rd,
it will seal that sucker . . .
For primer wrt to sanding and other prep I've used Olympic Accent flat black, paint primer combo, about $20/gal and 1/2" napped roller,
go full strength and don't over work it. each coat needs at least 2 days to dry, weather depending,
you have 3 cabs, so that process will get a few extra miles from the duratex
I have some shelves about 2 years old and stuff still gets "stuck" on the flat black, but a coat of Duratex looks and bonds great
I've also been a professional painter so I can say that patience wrt this project, even behind a screen,
sounds like you want that, Yeah, this Is the right way . .
you're gonna love it . .
