Well, I don't know about you guys but I say everything with pictures and yes, I use Model Master Gloss Black and nothing else. After warming my paint and applying it nice and wet, I wait only 1 to 2 hours and shoot my Alclad very lightly. I have never needed to rub it at the end. For some reason I have found out that when the paint is in the "tacky" stage before drying, the Alclad works better for me. This is just my humble opinion but I always say, practice and test before any Alclad session!! :P

Everything chrome on this Cobra is Alcladed including the rims.

This is Alclad Aluminum with the same black base, not very different than the chrome for this Corolla's wheels.

Bumpers and rear light bezels are Alcladed on this Impala.

Velocity stacks on this Falcon. I have tried all the methods mentioned on this thread, I am keeping this one but I am sure that every person is going to have their own opinions and that I certainly can respect!!! :P



Thanks for the pictures, Marcos, those really show whats possible. I'm ready to Cruz like an Egyptian now.. :D

Dave, if you're serious about that water-based chroming system of yours, you definitely are CRAZY!!! :lol:

You've put more effort into that one system than most of us will put into the entire hobby in our lifetimes! Too bad you couldn't simplify it and patent it...

That Kosutte Gin-san stuff is awesome.  Is it still available anywhere?  I wonder if you could let the solvent in Alclad II Chrome evaporate off and use the metallic stuff that's left as a rub-on product...
