Great info! Question tho. Flexible plastics.. Does this ( paint, not the film) hold up well to that?
I have a bike ( its all hotrodding after all.. Chevelle has a longer wait time than the bike at this moment) with some plastic bits... And it might be just the ticket to make it different from others out there.
How about Old cast aluminum Wheels, is that an option? Otherwise to me its either....
1- glass blast them and clear... Or
2- powdercoat to a cast like color.
This really looks like a viable option on the wheels....
The tires are changed with spoons anyway (plastic on the pry side)...
No hijack here.. Just asking

The key ofcourse, is to maintain the chrome appearance after both clear jobs. And the trick for me is to treat the operation like a precision surgery. Not a haphazard spray job. So many people just want to hose stuff on and let the paint do all the work. Instant gratification.
Nope. You gotta go micro, not macro.
Apply everything with the 'less is more' attitude. Think about how solvents are working for you and against you. Solvents are the enemy, yet you cant paint without them.
The cure time on your black is greatly important. Do a side by side on that sometime to see the difference a few days makes.
Best of luck and thanks for the kewl side by sides.
Its super fun stuff!

Definately do yourself a favor and use Motostorms Black Ice under your Motochrome. It will blow Alsa out of the water.
Ive been balls deep in all these chromes for years. Getting out of it now, but i'll pass along any info I can to help.
1st pic: Mostostorms SpectraFec (basically chrome with a holigraphic effect)
2nd pic is Motochrome/Motoclear/Glamour Clear (and this was their 2nd gen formula. He has since improved it several times now. Something Alsa does not do)
4th pic: Black Ice. 1 spray session. After several weeks sitting in booth. The stuff just DOES NOT DIE BACK. Simply the best black out there.
5th pic: Motochrome.
