Painting Tech - Chrome or Tinted Chrome Mustangs

Did you ever desire to have a "Chrome or Tinted Chrome Mustang?

If you have, check out this new product and a couple of vids.

Spectra Chrome - The paints

Creations N Chrome - The paintists'

Spray on Chrome - Vid 1

Chrome 2011 Mustang - Vid 2

I think it is a really cool product.
Not to sure about a totally chrome car, but for dressing up parts and wheels it looks great. I especially like that it can be tinted almost any color you want.

Mixed feelings on the completely chrome car.. looks meh. But would look much better on an exotic or such.

Could you possibly use that spray on interior parts...?

Re: Painting Tech - Chrome or Tinted Chrome Mustangs

I know a little bit bout the spectra chrome ive seen it sprayed on abs plastics and fiberglass (bumpers and complete crotch rockets) it can be sprayed on about anything but the spectra chromes are really expence im a painter and was looking into buying the system its a couple grand and a three part system which includes hydrocloric acid and the people who do spray it most likely charge a pritty penny.

The paint is expensive, but not any more expensive than some of the other paints out there.
From what I read about it there is a base coat, the metal spray and then a clear top coat that can be tinted any color you wish.

The cost is $2-$3 a square foot.
You can buy a complete "Professional" system for under $3000.
Nowhere did I read anything about any hydrocloric acid.

Here's what it says:
Spectra Chrome Advantages:

• Environmentally friendlier than conventional chrome plating
• Contains no Hexavalent Chromium compounds
• Complies with US guidelines for VOC emissions
• No size restrictions or limitations
• Ultra-durable finish - ideal for OEM interior or exterior applications
• Very cost effective - between $2 to $3 per square foot
• Can be used on semi-rigid substrates where conventional chrome
fails
• Complete professional systems starting under $3000
• Full technical support and free training available

Spectra Chrome’s specially formulated basecoat offers maximum
adhesion to virtually any substrate, while providing a high-gloss
reactive surface to which the metal spray bonds. The basecoat is
fast drying and covers most substrates in just one “criss-cross”
coating.
