Also how many days would this take?
    Here you go. I basically did the same thing, but I'm too lazy to type it all out.

    thanks and there is no sanding or etching of the chrome the plastidip adheres to it. it took me a couple days because i let it each color sit for a while. the paint and clear coat are from house of colors.

    I like the fact that you don't have to sand the chrome!

    So you used plastidip and then used paint and clear coat and were done that easy? That sounds like somethin i might do myself one day! I have a air compressor and ebay has good deals on Paint guns that i could get for like $40 or less the HVLP ones that is i just gotta find out ther name of the compressor and the hose size and HP it has before i buy one.
