Hasegawa do a mirror film that is intended to be used like BMF (get it from HLJ) but which is actually mirrored sticky backed mylar and transmits light like 1:1 mirror tint film.

As Mark has found the problem is keeping the air bubbles and dust out.

 

A wet application, just like when doing 1:1 vehicle windows, is the best way to help prevent the film from trapping air bubbles.

Go to Wal-Mart and look in the household cleaners aisle.  It's usually on the bottom shelf-- "Pledge with Future Shine".  One bottle will last you a long, long time.  Future is not the same as clear acrylic paint or varnish, so it's worth the effort to get the real stuff.
