    Hi,

    I am looking to do a dark/black chrome finish on the chrome exterior pieces, has anyone used a dark/black chrome spray or vinyl on the exterior chrome pieces? any pictures what it looks like? thanks!

    something like this, Amazon.com: Dupli-Color SHD1000 Shadow Chrome Black-out Coating Kit: Automotive

    or similar in vinyl

    looking to get a darker shiny chrome look like this,

    I've used the satin black plasti-dip on mine and I like the look of it. If you want it to shine, apply their glossifier. Works very well.

    In a few weeks I plan to get all my chrome darkened. My detailing shop showed me the look he suggested on a few spare pieces of Chrome he had. I cant wait to get it done.

    NY.... Detailing Dynamics in Mineola. They already did my tint, wheels, front and rear cameras and my radar & laser jammers but will be going back soon to finish it off.

    IMG_3593.JPG I had all my chrome vinyl wrapped in satin black (including door handles) and my rims powder coated. Only chrome left is the TESLA cut out on the back. Windows tinted with 3M crystalline 40%. I get a lot of compliments on the color scheme. IMG_3597.JPG IMG_3599.JPG
