Hi All :)

Thought my car needed cheering up and being such a quiet retiring type, I went for Chrome Mirror wrap....

Shortcut to a YouTube video link and a couple of pics...

Nor sure what to do about the wheels...as Porsche wheels are ally, I am told they cannot be chromed.... so refurb and paint but in which colour ???

Silver maybe or someone suggested black to match the black spoilers on front /rear ??

Any suggestions welcome ???

All the best Brett :)

He's BACK !!!!

I'm sure you can get powder coat very close to chrome finish Brett. I was talking to a guy the other day who had his gearbox done with this stuff. I know its only paint, but he does have to treat it like chrome when cleaning and polishing. The result was stunning.

There is also a chrome paint that I saw on youtube. Tap Chrome Paint into Youtube and lots of info comes up.
