I've seen several cars done in the chrome paint before, including a Jaguar and a Shelby Cobra. There were a couple cars at last year's SEMA show in chrome paint too. :cool:

could you imagine trying to keep it clean? and 1200 a gallon? wow but if you can afford a Lambo then I guess that's just a drop in the bucket..

my painter is waiting on that paint it is coolor eazy to shoot
ya go to alsacorps site, they show a video of shooting it... looks easier then paint, you just dump the stuff on until it's dripping off..., it smooths itself out, and looks like what would be a run normally just would end up laying flat with this stuff..., but imagine the effect if the body had ANY waviness? lol

the body work has to be PERFECT. im sure they had to work that lambo over a few times. nothing is perfect from factory, would hope a lambo would be near perfect though. Lots of work before you can even spray the chrome. You have to buff the black paint(with clear of course) to a miror shine. Then you have to spray the "ready to spray" chrome paint. Then you have to clear that. That is a tricky thing to do. Not all clear gives a good result, and has annoyed a lot of good painters. Going to waste some material to find out what works before doing any big project.
