Krylon Chrome Paint

Here is an example of the Krylon Chrome Spray Paint. It's more of a super buffed steel or aluminum look, but still very nice. Def. not chrome as in what we see on our mufflers etc.

If you want chrome paint... Check out this website.
They have lots of specialty paints, and their chrome is as close to real chrome as you can get with paint...

Yeah, well for 40 bucks a can, I'll fire up my powdercoater and powdercoat the parts in chrome.

You won't mistake the powdercoat for chrome either; BTDT. If anything, it's little better than the above paint, and harder to replace when it does mar and get dull....
