I'm toying with doing some details on a frame using chrome/mirror paint.
I remember someone on here doing a San Andreas frame using it but i can't find the thread :?
Anybody got any experience using it and what product is best?
Ideally in a can as i won't be using much, but if a 2 pack variety is a lot better i don't mind getting some :wink:

I know from the guys at work in the paintshiop having used it in the past, that the Akzo Nobel 2k stuff is good.... (its the one they paint Mclaren's with, and will most likely be what I paint my old hack/dirt/park 24" bmx in)

Other than that I dont know, I think the stuff you get in a can will be pretty rubish

You can buy Chrome vinyl, which looks far more like chrome than any of the spray paints :)
