i keep hesitating to squeze the trigger all the way and then adding multiple coats to make sure i covered all of it then it goes to shit
i do mine in several thin coats..comes out nice

try clearing over the black base before spraying the chrome, it'll shine better ;)

i did this with the aluminum

Can you or can't you spray a clear coat over the applied Alclad?  :)

That deuce rear end looks very good with Alclad!
nope, kills the shine, turns it into regualar silver

Just spray it over a glossy black. Same process as a mirror

Just what I thought...I told these guys on a Dutch forum they couldn't clear it...he did never heard anyhting from him again... :biggrin: So it is pretty sensitive to finger touches right?
yeah, I don't care for it, I'm sticking to real plating except for stuff like exhaust, just to break up the undercarriage
