    I wonder how this shit looks in real life and how long it lasts...

    Sorry, no idea how to find a youtube version.
    Edit.
    Found it! Its kind of film! Comes with what ever color. That may actually be handy if you want to test different options before painting or chroming.... I can see dust being a big problem...
    Take a look at this video on YouTube:

    Huh, looks like it may be worth while to play with a rattle can? I'd like to see if it can somewhat fix my crappy peeling forks....?

    For the price of a can, your 1/2 way there to have them re-chromed.

    Edit: more digging, its only $30 a rattle can. Not too terrible if it does what it claims.

    I saw that the kits started in the $200's
    Give it a shot can't hurt to try it, they did say it needs to be buffed and it can be peeled off like tin foil. But $30 is worth a try

    The finished product looked good in the video. I’ve got a few things that could benefit if it works as advertised.

    I bought some old wheels on Craig'slist for a 72 k5 blaze I have sinking in the ground in the backyard and I figured the wheels weren't going to be much good when I finally dig it out. The wheels are a AR160 billet aluminum, very dull and covered in road grime. I thought about powder coating them chrome but first I'm gonna try polishing them by hand with the tips you've all mentioned here. There is a shop close to Kansas City that wants $180 a wheel to polish. I only gave $60 for the set and I'm in no hurry. IMG_1999.JPG

    The pictures don't do them justice on how dirty they are and all the little nicks they have. It's gonna take some cleaning and sanding before I'm ready for Mothers Billit.
