That doesn't look anything like what was on the website. Was it sprayed wrong? I know there was a whole list of shit you had to do to make it look just right.

we use it at the sign shop and it looks like chrome if you do everything properly. if you shoot a layer of primer dont just spray the mirra chrome right onto that like a basecoat, you have to put about 2-3 coats of clear on and use it as an intercoat and you have to polish that clear until its like glass. you only spray until you have even coverage, more is not better

and which mirra chrome did you use? there are two types, 1 is like chrome and the other gives and aluminum look

a gallon is about 1200$ so yeah its pretty expensive and you use clear as an intercoat and polish the hell out of it before you apply the mirrachrome and then throw a few coats of clear over top or candy over it

That mirra chrome BMW looks pimp.

I always wanted a chrome paint job like that. I knew all this time someone must have done it but never saw anything remotely close to it.

Looks cool as shit
