hussey:, by all means post what info you've come up with.   That's what this thread and forum are all about -- sharing chemistry knowledge.
Hey, I'm not judging.  I just like to shoot straight.  I'm a man of science.

We will discuss the wetting agent or so called activator or sensitizer and reducer of salt solution later, first i want to comfirm the chemistry of my salt solution so called silvering solution A, reason is that its the most expensive solution among all of the rest.
For 1 litre diluted solution, i took 2.5gm silver nitrate in 500ml distilled water and while stirring i added concentrated amonia drop by drop until the solution becomes black then turns clear again (3ml approx), this means the silver nitrate is disloved.
Then i took another beaker and dissolved 7.5gm sodium hydroxide in 500ml distilled water. Then i mixed this solution to my sliver nitrate solution, the mixture will turn black again then i add amonia again drop by drop (7ml approx) until it turns into clear solution.
This is my salt solution.
You guys can use it with your company provided reducer and check the result, please do let me know the result.
NOTE: use sliver nitrate, sodium hydroxide and amonia Lab grade only.

How can I get the list of chemicals needed

Early in this thread, the creator, nicamarvin:, posted another link that details the chemicals needed:  http://www.chemicalforums.com/index.php?topic=46428.15

Guys, I've decided to lock this thread.  I've made it sticky, so it will always be at the top, because this is a great thread, but it has run out its course.

nicamarvin: has done a pretty impressive thing, he's taken the silver mirror reaction, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tollens%27_reagent#In_silver_mirroring, and used it to make an excellent automotive finish.  He's used his expertise in finishing to be able to select he proper base-coat, tint the silvering, and provide a good clear-coat.  If anyone wants to know more, they can read the thread from the beginning, check out the other finishing board links, or check out youtube.

nicamarvin:, if you feel like you have to add something, please send a PM a MOD: or ADMIN:, and we'll help out.

However, the endless posts, "This is awesome, email me how to do this" are going to have to stop now.

*Topic Locked*
