I haven't used it, since I found out some of the difficulties others have encountered... but I can tell you a couple things you should know.

I haven't used it, but it requires that you first do a complete buffed black paint job, before applying the "chrome"... so don't plan on it being easy.

The paint is sensitive enough to repuire using all specially engineered products, so the solvents will not attack the "chrome", causing it to look like metallic silver.

Once you get the candy on it, it will be almost impossible to ever spot repair.

Candy paint jobs are also hard to match, in case you tried to repaint an entire section.

Even though I am a career custom painter, I would not even agree to do it for a customer. That's how much confidence I have in it being very frustrating.

If you are still daring enough... Good luck... and post some pictures! :-)
