Has anyone tried the chrome spray paint advertized by Jay Leno. I saw an ad for 85 bucks a pint.
I believe what MWR uses on their wheels are power coating.I dont know which paint you are speaking about, but there was a product around-May still be- called Killer Chrome. Its paint and not chrome but looked real good. Take a look, a little pricey but if it works it would be cool.
Also as to the real chrome vs. the chrome paint. In Nascar Chrome Wheels have been outlawed for many years. thats why all of the cars run painted wheels. There problem was wheels flying apart at 180 or 190 MPH due to Hydrogen Embrittlement. About three years ago Michael Waltrip showed up at Daytona with what looked exactly like Chromed Wheels. Turned out it was in fact some type of paint. I have had my hands on one of the wheels and they look very good and from a couple of feet appear to be chrome. All of his car today run that same wheel, there the only ones that do. I would love to find out what it is, this Killer Chrome stuff may be it. I would like to find out if they are still in business or long gone. There web-site and the link above still work. Why don't one of you guys try it and let us all know if it works.......
