Re: Chrome idea, maybe not.

I had all my chrome painted after going OCD on the trim brite, I couldnt for the life of me get all the air bubbles out and make it look decent..

Ive had my trim painted for about a year now, and ive had one chip that was an easy touch up

And the plasti dip, it holds up, its been on my rims now for at least 4k miles though salt and snow,

Re: Chrome idea, maybe not.

i had my rear bumper strip professionally painted and it had two chips in less than a month. Im convinced painting over chrome is not a long term answer

Re: Chrome idea, maybe not.

As previously stated. 3m 180 with comply is easy to install and comes in a variety of colors. 3m as well as a couple other companies such as hexis offer premium cast specialty films like cast CF and matte black that are made to wrap parts. they have air egress systems that make bubble free install easy, and pressure sensitive adhesives that make install easier. I'd use vinyl instead of paint or plastidip. it easy, cheap, and if it ever chips, or you want a different look, you just peel it off and re-do it.

Re: Chrome idea, maybe not.

painting chrome ONLY works and I am hesitant to say this much, if and when you really destroy the surface and make it so rough you could scratch your back with it! Then you can take normal painting procedures and have it last maybe a year or two under normal condition but eventually it will chip off. Chrome is just a horrible surface/compound for paint adhesion, no getting around that This 3M vinyl looks legit, Im gonna get a matt black roll for the helluvit!
