Welcome aboard, this is a great site with lots of good information.

Before we get to your question, I have a question...How long is the string in my pocket?

Trying to get back to you A.S.A.P. but I don't see a picture, I don't know what shiny like chrome means, do you mean to make the paint lay down flat, and be shiny and smooth like chrome? I don't know what purple passion pearl paint is, is it a paint code, a color, a brand?

So I hope you can see why I ask "how long is the string in my Pocket" because as you don't know, no one else will know what you are asking until you become a little more specific with your question.

Best Regards.

Ray

There are paints on the market that look like chrome, but they are part of a special paint system which is very sensitive. If you try to use other brands with them, it can attack the chrome color and make it look like a grainy silver, and you may lose the "chrome" look.

Another thought...

Pearls are kind of "hazy", and if you spray a pearl color over the "chrome" base, you may lose some of that chrome look. If you want that reflective chrome you should probably use a candy instead of a pearl... and make sure it is from the same paint system.

If you aren't sure you will like the color, just shoot some color-samples of your different choices to see which one makes you happy.
