I went to the Innate web sight after I posted that. They refer to it as an intermediate clear. Appears it keeps the 2k clear from destroying the shine. This may be a great product for plastic interior trim.

before the chrome paint you must have a glossy black basecoat looking like a mirror, the chrome will be as good as this base and if it has orange peel it will show it in the chrome. I try to paint my basecoat as perfect as I can so I donīt have to polish it out..

Definately do yourself a favor and use Motostorms Black Ice under your Motochrome. It will blow Alsa out of the water.

Ive been balls deep in all these chromes for years. Getting out of it now, but i'll pass along any info I can to help.

1st pic: Mostostorms SpectraFec (basically chrome with a holigraphic effect)

2nd pic is Motochrome/Motoclear/Glamour Clear (and this was their 2nd gen formula. He has since improved it several times now. Something Alsa does not do)

4th pic: Black Ice. 1 spray session. After several weeks sitting in booth. The stuff just DOES NOT DIE BACK. Simply the best black out there.

5th pic: Motochrome.

The key ofcourse, is to maintain the chrome appearance after both clear jobs. And the trick for me is to treat the operation like a precision surgery. Not a haphazard spray job. So many people just want to hose stuff on and let the paint do all the work. Instant gratification.
Nope. You gotta go micro, not macro.
Apply everything with the 'less is more' attitude. Think about how solvents are working for you and against you. Solvents are the enemy, yet you cant paint without them.

The cure time on your black is greatly important. Do a side by side on that sometime to see the difference a few days makes.
Best of luck and thanks for the kewl side by sides.
Its super fun stuff!
