cosmichrome

Saw this on a car in streetrodder and am very curious. Found some mention of it in other threads but was wondering if anyone has actually used it and their opinion. Sure looks impressive. Also if anyone knows any NY dealers .

And I thought that email I got about this car being made from solid silver and belonging to some Sultan somewhere was true....

Im thinking of contacting these guys about plating/painting a grill for me. Is there a dealer list? Does anyone know someplace that does it?

I cant find a dealer list anywhere - thats why I was asking. I guess they want you to call them. That car in Street Rodder (pg60) looks awesome.

wow Ive never seen a paint look like chrome before. That looks as good as the chrome powder-coats. I don't know if I would want it on my whole car tho. Maybe some kind of accents or something. Although It would be sick to do it like a candy. Spray the chrome as a base and top coat it with an iridescent blue or red.

I saw the Alsa shot at a demo a while back, pretty impressive. HOWEVER, it is MILES from the sheen of REAL chrome. It is getting there, sort of close, but it certainly isn't as shiny as real chrome.
