    Nothing will give you the same effect as real chrome, but there some that are supposed to give a chrome finish. I'm still to see one that works, though..

    This is the very best chrome paint out thier right now. From Alsa Croporation, which also produces other cool paints.

    Check this link: http://www.alsacorp.com/killercans.htm

    The item is called Killer Chrome.


    Hope this helps:thumb:

    Great link scooby. Ouch says the wallet! some of the other can paints are cool also but a $40 a can they better be cool lol. I have never been able to find a suitable paint to replicate chrome, but that deosn't mean they don't exist.

    I always wanted to see how they chrome plastic parts. It would be nice to find something I could use to re-chrome some antique car parts.

    Your welcome!

    Their is a video somewhere around their that shows the process of how they use the Killer Chrome and it illustrates how well that chrome paint comes out. I'll see if I can find it and post a link soon.

    The top surface of chromed plastic seems to be more of a film than a paint.

    Yep I immediately googled it. It seems an entire plastic chroming industry has popped up since I last looked. (VIVA! internet!)

    The cool thing about it is that it actually made you read (and even post) on this thread! :p


    It's almost like making at thread with the title "Don't read this!". (Don't try it. It's been done.)

    @ cheapskate:
    http://www.mmmetalizing.com/ YOu may want to check them out. The process is called "metalizing" and basically you can "chrome" anything! I am planning on using them for my next mod.

    I can see his point. Generally speaking, a more descriptive and relevent title will attract the attention of those that can help and those that can benefit from the thread.

    A random thread title such as "?" will only attract random people who are curious enough to check the thread out.
