I knew Alsa had a chrome system that you had to spray on with a gun. Hadn't tried it because noone carries it in this area. Didn't know that they had a rattle can version of it.
I should be more clear, I have tried all of the OTC chrome methods, none of which would accept clear without turning.
I have wanted to see some of the spectra chrome system results however I think you have to buy their whole system and equipment.
However I think they were the company that painted "Grave Digger" for their 25th anniversary.

I too use a chrome powder coat but am always looking for something with even more luster and reflectivity.

I'v tryed all the "chrome" paints out there, they don't work.
All that I have found that looks good and lasts is a "chome" powder coat. It has a nice deep look and wont peel or fade!

If you DO experiment with this, keep us posted...even if it doesn't turn out so good. Might give others some clues for doing even more experimentation.
I always thought mirror was a reflective surface sprayed or attached to the back side of the glass or acrylic and then a gray and/or black over that to protect from scratching on the back side.
I assume you have seen the Mirra Chrome line of paints. They create "black chrome"...sort of what you are talking about. Here's a link
