    Default Pimp my ride

    I was watching Pimp My Ride (US version) at the weekend and they were 'sorting' a brand new Mustang. They sprayed the front with a Chrome paint and it was very effective. It did look a specialist job and I bet it's not cheap.

    After a quick search in Google I found the guy who did it and a pic of the car. The car also has a split bonnet. It's cut in half dirrectly down the middle and both sections open sideways. Very cool.

    I wonder if the Cosmichrome will make it over to this side of the water. I bet there's a market for it. I wonder if it's another business interest??

    my mate owns a body shop in swindon he does chrome painting,did his car about a year ago,looks really good very hard to get it right though bodies got to be perfectly smooth or it will look like a hall of mirrors.

    In my country its "against" the law to paint your car in chrome finnish. I can understand why...Driving round in a mirror..hehe
    Thats if you do the whole car by the way...
