well, that's some cool paint work. looks like a real looking chrome paint was used ( the expensive stuff ) as a base coat under a transparent orange candy top coat

the dark areas look like reflections to me and the kosmic chrome with the candy over it..Go to the HOK website and get some info from them on Kandy effects. In fact buy the book and it will outline for yourself some of the technique to get custom effects..there is also a dvd of colors so you can try various things on your computer to get some ideas of painting
as well.

I doubt that is Kosmic Khrome underneath. More than likely it is ALSA's ChromeFx or SpetraChrome with a tangerine or organge Kandy over it. Unfortunately you have to buy a whole spray system for several grand to get thsoe products to work. You can get close to that with Kosmic Khrome, ALSA's Mirror Chrome or these guys stuff:

They all seem to work about the same to me. They all tend to lose some reflectivity when you clear or over coat them. ChromeFx & SpectraChrome don't from what I hear but the avg hobby painter can't afford the machine system and waste disposal.
