Cover rusted oven door with black glass?

My 72 Tradewind is looking pretty good with upgraded interior etc. Would like to match the black plexiglass on the new Dometic fridge with a black glass panel over the pitted/rusty door on my still working Magic Chef Oven/Cooktop.
Anybody got a diagram on how the door comes apart? What glass to use (tempered I assume) and how to glue or attach it to the old door? The handle has to come off and reattach over or drill through the new glass?
Thanks

You add the extra weight,then you need new springs,I would think heat resistant paint would be in my plans. Dave

You can paint your stove door with appliance epoxy paint. Follow directions carefully. We used it and when we sold our travel trailer ten years later the paint was still perfect. Gives a nice high gloss baked on finish. We used black high temp paint for the burner pan. We purchased the paint at Sears. Be sure you get epoxy paint for appliances.

Epoxy Paint on Oven

Was it a spray on paint and did you have to sand or prep the door before painting? Did you tske the door apart to paint?

Spray Epoxy Paint runs on Oven Door

Not being a pro at the spray paint can technology the black Epoxy Appliance paint had a few runs that were from overdoing it. So what do I do, let it dry a day and lightly sand the affected area and then put on a new coat with a lighter touch? Any ideas from you pro's would help. Think I'll also remove the grey cover on the stove and give her a coat of black too.

spray paint

Yes, it is a spray paint. You can take apart or use tape. Sand lightly after it has dried completely. Use a tack cloth, you want the surface to be dust free. It might be a good idea to buy a can of cheap paint and practice on something else first. Good luck!!

oven door

So I lightly sanded with 150 grit over the bad areas with the runs and made things worse after spraying a coat over it. Now there's a huge area the looks rough and uneven in two parts of the door. Any thoughts on this ?

Have you considered an auto body paint shop? Surely someone in your area would do this. Good luck.

Oven door

I may have to now. Was trying to do this without taking the door apart but looks like I'm in for that now. May if I take it out get black tempered glass cut for it.

On my 75 safari I replaced the rusty piece with a new piece of 20 Gauge Stainless Steel with #4 finish. Remove the six Phillips head screws on the trim piece that goes around the door to access the handle witch has two Phillips head screws holding it on, its pretty straight forward. Once you get the old panel out use it as a pattern for the new piece.
