yes, formica paint is available. the door will be thicker. formica isn't
especially smooth. you might get a better surface removing the door and
painting with an oil based paint when it's horizontal. sprayed on is best.
Do a web search on "swedish putty"; this stuff is used to obtain a
limousine-like smoothness to front doors. The paint job must be flawless to
get anything out of this type of prep. Think of rubbing out a good quality
lacquer with 10000 grit abrasive. Then wax. It will redefine what you
consider to be shiny.
