POST LOTS OF PICS!!!!

I didn't mean to yell.... but I've wanted mine to be shadow chrome, it would be great to see how it turns out & how well that stuff works.

:wink: Well I decided to not do the grille, I have chrome door protectors and the rear hatch chrome thingy above the license plate.. But hey I did my large Ram head off my 2010 Ram 1500,this is removed from the front grille. check it out.. this stuff is awsome..all you do is just use a wax/grease remover solvent and spray on the shadow tint.., the more coats the darker it gets.. when you have the right shade, let it dry for 1 hr and then spray the clear coat. We all know how chrome these emblems are.. now look at it. Image

8) Yes, no sanding of anything.. this stuff like bonds to the chrome. just make sure it is clean, use a wax remover-degreaser.

Looks good. I wonder if you could spray it over your headlamps/tail lamps? (Obviously not so dark)

the guys in the video (Brian & Brian) are wearing shirts with both the Dupli-Color and VHT logos on them. Apparently, both are divisions of Sherwin Williams.
