It's possible but a severe PITA. I've seen aircraft guys cover an entire plane with it but today the most common method is Alclad.

what kind of a finish could I get with bare-metal and could i blend seams???
You can get a very shiny chrome-like appearance out of it. Once it's on you can polish it with wax just like paint and bring it to a pretty high gloss IF you got it smooth enough when putting it down. If you have some it might be worth it to just try it on an area of a body to see if it's a road you want to go down.
