Cheap car chrome alternative

Chroming automotive parts has become very expensive in recent years and although spray on chrome has been around for a number of years the end result is never that close to real chrome and often looks more like polished steel until now.

After quite some research I found a fantastic technology similar to that used in the mirror making industry which provide a genuine faux chrome finish to any base material including plastic, fibre glass, carbon fibre and metals.
