Make sure you use it only on parts that are cheap to replace, because I guarantee it will not look as good as you are envisioning it.

Did you notice how chromey it looked on the cardboard? If not, watch the video again.

"chromed" parts only look good if the surface you are applying it to are EXTREMELY highly polished and flawless. Like the unrealistic surfaces they painted in the video. That's why chroming is so expensive - the part has to be flawless and then polished and polished and polished prior to coating to get the desired results.

And durability? Forget it. It is spray paint.

Real chrome is electroplated metal - a layer of copper, then a layer of nickel, and then a microscopically thin layer of chromium. Several hundred times (or thousands) more scratch resistant than an air-dried paint.

Sorry buddy for not posting so fast for you....Some of us have to work for 8 to 10 hours a day

the l.e.d. lights are from sik-lites installing them is a walk in the park.A little common sense and you should not have a problem installing them.Install as many lites as you want...Its all about what you like on your bike.There is no limit on whats to many and whats to little.
