    Actually it's a new chrome painting process. It is applies just like a base coat/clear coat system. It is designed to simulate actual chrome with around 95-99% chrome like appearance.

    Several places sell the paint such as:

    The Alsa Corporation

    Gold Touch Inc.

    The system goes on just like a basecoat/clearcoat process but the materials are about 5 times the cost. Cool stuff but expensive.

    Yea, very illegal. Think about it. Common sense says it'll blind anyone who sees it in the daylight. Imagine chrome rims times 100. Yowzers!
