Hey, if you've done the hard work to get that nice polished look, why not make it all match?!!

Maybe this stuff will do the trick, actually branded as "Reflective Aluminum" paint...

I'm not sure I'd argree with the Westwood stuff. I've been looking at Alsa Corp | The world's most unique paints and finishes for a couple of years. Their applications vary with materials but KillerChrome is one very interesting idea as is MirraChrome. Take some time to watch their online videos and you'll see what I mean.
The majority of so called chrome paint is nothing more than silver paint. Alsa is much much more.
MirraChrome has no equal. Other companies are selling coatings which are simply a version of our Ghost Chrome - no product to date can compare to the reflection rate of MirraChrome. Many other have tried without success to bring you a top-coatable chrome spray. Only Alsa has done it! Using our complete MirraChrome kit, and following the required dry times, and application recommendations you can achieve a clear coated and completely durable finish 95-98% that of true chrome. Try it and see regardless of what they say there IS a chrome spray that can be topcoated and doesnít look like simple spray paint when finished and itís called MirraChrome.

See more photos at https://www.leftlanenews.com/2006/03/...r-ci-el-ago/It isn't cheap and like most paint finishes you still will want to clear coat the final finish.
BTW I have a back door request in from a friend. His brother is a designer at Ford and we're trying to get info on the paint used.

Chrome on plastic
 
Hey Toastie,
Try this. I am putting it on the Carrier low profile cover. Pictures to come. It may be too much "bling" for the Caravel. We could be shunned over this.

Plating vs. painting....I'd go for plating if the price was right. However for something like the A/C shroud, well I'm a DIY'er. So I'd go KillerChrome. MR what's the quote to do the plating from Eastwood?
