    Default Total Chrome out...TOTAL!

    Would it be impossible to chrome my whole truck? Now I'm talking finders and everything. I just think it would be something different and I've never seen it done before. I am up for doing it. All you have to do is get them dipped right? Any how toos on this one?

    im guessing you would have to sand down every piece down to the metal.

    I'd say it could be done as I've seen some cars and suv's in Dubai and Saudi Arabia that have been chromed or have some othter exotic process to shine them. It would be worse than black to keep up though!

    Yeah but wouldn't you like to see it done? There would be a paint job like it in the U.S. as far as I know.

    I was going to say they have chrome paints and that would be the best way. And with the color changing paint I had a toy car (ferari) that did that it was white when it was cold and silver hot (not as cool as having the real thing though).
