I've never had any luck with this product and abandoned the concept many years ago. It basically is silver paint that loses luster and shine rather quickly. If you want a chrome shine, go new OEM replacement (big bucks) or aftermarket product.

so its looks good for a few months then it looks silver? yea oem is big money. id rather get a billet with shell. but funds r limited till i graduate trucking school. then i was going to get it. but you think it would stay on shiny for a couple month's??? or is it not even worth touching.......?

I have seen a true chrome like paint on ebay a coupple years ago. I think it was intended to paint hub caps or something. I have never used that stuff, but the stuff from autozone came out silver not chrome.
