    This is a difficult powder to work with. You simply MUSt ensure that the part is near 100% smooth prior to coating as defects in the substrate will show thru. However, this wasnt my issue. Pinholes, which I thought was an outgassing issue ruined the 1st couple of attempts. (Yes I outgassed the part at 450 degrees for 45 mins) After stripping the part again, I outgassed it again at 500 degrees for 45 mins, applied a black powder primer, and recoated. Results were much better. Not for the novice, especially with the need to have to topcoat this powder with a clear for UV protection. Maybe a better choice would be the Single Stage Reflective Chrome.

    I used this product with the super-gloss clear. The piece i did came out closer to shinny silver than chrome. I will not use this product again.

    I used it for a piece on my motorcycle and it does not look like chrome. It is more silver. If you want a real chrome look do not use this product.

    Beautiful results when used as a base coat for a transucent color over the top. In the attached picture, I mixed three parts translucent blue with two parts translucent green to come up with a metallic teal color. The reflective chrome underneath really makes the color come alive. My cell phone camera doesn't do its apearance justice.

    ...if you like spending ten times the money and twenty times the labor for a finish you can get out of a rattle can. The required clear topcoat kills it every time. And just to clarify, I used Eastwood's "incorrect" instructions they print on the product the first time and their "revised" instructions on this webpage for my second attempt with identical results. 4 ruined wheels and 1 water pump housing later, I am through. Caveat emptor!

    I like it, but it can be a handful depending on what you apply it to when used as a basecoat

    Ok, lets get one thing straight! This product looks exactly like chrome when it comes out of the oven to the point that I actually smiled when I first seen it.

    The problem is you have to clear coat this chrome for the second stage and the clear coat kills all reflectivity to the point where it looks exactly like the possum holler chrome you buy in the can from wal-mart... It still looks good but by no means can you call it chrome! Polished aluminum maybe!

    This is after using the recommended low heat super gloss clear coat (part# 10329) at 250° and if your thinking about using a spray on clear coat don't... Your part will turn out dark gray with next to no luster (Looks good too)

    The problem with not clear coating this chrome is you cannot polish it, clean it or leave it in direct sun light for more then a day because it will tarnish into a cloudy haze of you just ripped off a customer.

    The quality of the shine is amazing. I used it to powder coat some engine brackets. It worked great. Terrific product.
