Re: Chrome Paint

Yates, I have seen the videos of the new chrome paint process and I think it looks very doable. If I had a place close to me I would certainly have my '29 D60 radiator shell done. I am very curious to see how it looks when properly applied!

Re: Chrome Paint

Hi All,
I wrote an article some 16 or 17 years ago about Metal Finishing (copper, nickel and chrome) that was published in the "Durant Partner". Will update and send to Carol.

Thanks for all the input.....

Re: Chrome Paint

theres a company called alsa paint products, they show the chrome paint and finish and the procedure,i was told its 97 percent reflective compared to chrome,i believe they have videos showing the process, it may be a good product for headlight reflectors also small little parts like dash knobs interior parts etc,watch the video and let us know what you think dave
