Proceed with MUCH caution. And don't for a moment rely on the video representations supplied by outfits selling these systems. I'd go right to the horses mouth...the shops that have purchased these units and are (or have been) using them for production work. You need to see the units in action first hand, you need to have operating time with the unit, AND you need to see and inspect first hand pieces that have been completed AND ON THE ROAD for at least 1-3 years. My major issue with chrome paints is durability. I drive my rods and whatever finish they have, it has to hold up to rain, road debris, harsh sunlight and even SNOW (yes, I've occasionally driven my cars in the the white stuff). The chrome paints may look good on show vehicles, but the real test is how well they perform on the road.
The one other thing to keep in mind is that like most painting, all the real work is in the preparation. And when shooting chrome, that factor is multiplied by about 10. There can be no flaws in the underlying media. And like most painting, the only way to insure that the underlying media is perfect, is for the painter to do all the prep work. So you better love sanding, straightening, and smoothing, because in my opinion, that is where the majority of your time will be spent if you get into this business.
Hopefully this doesn't sound too overly negative. I just know how I'd proceed if I were considering a major league investment like the one shown in your link.
