    does sound interesting, you mean for like the front chrome V? would be cool, would the tint spray stick to the chrome though?

    did you primer it first Morephun it also could be that the chrome strip on the back is metal, the v grill is plastic the same as the chrome in the lights.

    Did you just spray it directly on, thats what i was thinking?!? boot and window chrome, possibly the irmy mirrors too if it worked

    When i've done rear lights before i've not prepped the area, just put it straight on the lights and its stuck... But was hoping it would just darken up the chrome a little, not go purple

    Might just make my own spray using lacquer as its either this or colour code it. might be worth a try before hand any way - then c/c it?!?


    How many parts would you mix black into the lacquer anyone? 1 in 5? more....
