      You can but the red over silver metallic and when the bright light is on it you can see the metallic through it. Looks cool

      Nice motor hvac36. Bad cool

      The pics [email protected] you can't really see the metallic.

              As always, just make sure it is clean, clean, clean. Lint can be a PITA, even with "lint-free" towels. And it would show up easily on real chrome finishes.

                  just give it a little more time. you will be the one people want to replicate also.
                  when in doubt polish it out/ why replace it when you can refinish it

                      doing candy red over chrome powder, can you see reflections in the piece coated? I could see in the picture above that was done over real chrome you can, but can you over the powder chrome?
