I just made a fiberglass fan shroud and painted it with upps-a color chrome paint. It DOES NOT look like chrome. Want it does come of like is aluminum. You can hardly tell the difference in the aluminum radiator and the shroud.

Several people have tried that stuff and so far have not heard of too many with a good result. Factory chrome these days is done by a process of vacuum depositation which is way beyond the scope of any but the most dedicated hobbyist.

Iīve done a few reviews on chrome like coatings..

here is my latest review on the "Innate Chrome Paint"
THE H.A.M.B. - View Single Post - DIY Spray On Chrome

here is an old one
Alsa Stretch Chrome Film vs Innate Chrome

Cerakote Chromex ceramic coating review(on the shine properties, not heat)
Cerakote Chromex Ceramic coating review - THE H.A.M.B.

But the Only coating like system that can even outshine real chrome is "Spray On chrome" while not entirely a coating system, more like a Hybrid system, between chemical(silver nitrate) and paint(the silver goes in between the glossy basecoat and the protective clear coat). if you thought chrome paint was difficult, then Spray on chrome makes it look like childīs play, But Iīve done a How to, so anybody crazy enough can do it..

here is the thread, make sure to read it all if you want to learn how to do it.

not to hijack, but Just how good did that Ceracote stuff look close up ( I checked the link but the pics were a bit hard to tell )?
I realize it has to be cured at above 500 deg... but I also happen to own a kiln that will adjust down , large enough to hold the pieces that I want to fool with , and that stuff has an attractive price, not to mention looking like a lot less fuss to apply.

up close it looks like polished steel, its not as shiny as the Innate chrome paint. and it has to be cured above 500. if not it will come out the second you wash it with water. I did the sample on plastic to see if it could hold on lower temps, but it didnt. clear coating it wont work either. this is truly meant for metals, and it needs properly prep if not it will flake off. so its not so easy to pull it off
