Black Chrome???
 
I'm planning on getting my door moldings done in Black Chrome. Has anyone got plastic Black Chromed before? Can you suggest someone to do it for me? I'm from the east coast if that makes a difference.

typically chrome is plating, needs to be applied to metal.

door moldings are chrome plated plastic so traditional chrome NG. so there are specialty plastic chromers. BUT I have never seen a plastic chromer that does BLACK CHROME.

there also is black chrome powdercoating but again, this will not work on plastic.

so really, you need a painter. and if he can MIMIC black chrome, then that might be best way to go. then ask him to use a 'Ceramic Clear' to protect that paint.

I was curious if maybe someone could just do a tinted clear coat an the chrome ones. Probably wouldn't look the same though.
