Liquid Stainless Steel/Copper Paint

I was curious if anyone ever ran across any automotive paints which allowed you to make steel look like stainless steel or copper. I found a home appliance based paint people use to give the stainless steel look. I was thinking it'd be neat to paint my ride "stainless steel" or "copper".

I too am interested to see if there's anything out there. I think I know what appliance paint you're referring to. I had considered buying some of this, painting my suspension with narrow rollers, then protecting it with some kind of automotive-grade clear coat. Couldn't come up with the guts to try it. I still think it would be something different.

I am going to talk to my paint guy and see if he's ever seen anything like it before. hd_rider, that sounds like an interesting concept, wonder if you could thin the appliance paint out and use it like a traditional base coat.

Chevrolet-i don't think im going with boggers, too many people discouraged me with thoughts of uncomfortable riding and low air pressures, though i still like the idea.

Have you looked at log/dump truck front tires as another possible option they take like a 22 or 22.5 rim but they are big and wide.

I painted my stove at my camp with that "stainless" appliance paint and it just looks like a grey paint, nothing special.
