I wouldn't put much into what a magazine says.
They probably get paid to do those articles.
Like the $98.00 paint job or whatever it was....

MARTINSR 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.

smithkustoms 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.

anthonyc1 Im calling tommorow . I'll see what they say. Im in NY too so I'll post and let you know.
12-27-2009 03:28 PM
drchip 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.
12-27-2009 01:36 PM
anthonyc1 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?

It might last.Pretty interesting too.

And I thought that email I got about this car being made from solid silver and belonging to some Sultan somewhere was true....
12-27-2009 08:46 AM
123pugsy Yeah, I saw that one on a link from their site.

Some other nice stuff there too.
