    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?

    that would look pretty funky but hey its your truck


    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.

    Well I e-mail a company out of New York last night, we'll see what they say about it. I may try to get it done for free...it would be a good pitch for their company! I don't plan driving it if I get it done. May be turn it into a show truck. The salt up here is bad during the winter. This is something that I haven't seen in the states yet...so maybe the first? That's for the comments and pics everyone.

    That would most definetly be different. It would be terrible to take care of though.

    Wow, that Audi looks sweet! I think this would be a great project, but a hefty one! In care and price! All that chrome polish to try and keep that thing clean.
