I want this paint job

I've heard and seen of this type of paint before, but not on a car. Is there system out there or is it experimental?

Pretty sweet Looks like some type of copper. Bet it would be pretty annoying to everyone else in the sunlight. Still looks cool though!

Never seen anything like it, wow! Maybe it's Mirrochrome from Alsa coated with tangerine candy? I bet repairability is just great LOL

Is that the stuff that MB was using on their show cars?

On the one hand, I think it might be cool for some uses.

OTOH, your body work would have to be absolutely perfect for something that reflective.

that is NOT mirrachrome. mirrachrome is nowhere near that reflective. the car was most likely done with alsa chrome f/x system then candied. i attached 3 pics of custom painted tanks done this way. there is artwork over them but you get the idea.

i'm not to up to date on my old car knowledge but what kind of truck is that anyway. that thing is killer.
