This may or may not be news , but it's worth at least a bump ...

Let me preface my post by stating that I have no unbridge with Alclad . It's a fine product , and many have successfully utilised it on their builds .
However , for someone like myself ( lazy , minimalist , "frugal" ) , the cost of and the time-consuming processes necessary for employing Alclad is too much to endure .

Now , here's the meat :

Dupli-Color p.n. CS 101 !!

I've used in on a few builds already ( 1970 Challenger T/A's valve covers and air cleaner lid ; and side pipes and other pieces on the 80's A-TEAM van's 70's parts ) and am duly impressed !

While I've painted it over various base colours , I have found that gloss black works best
( more-reflective ) versus the Testors Flat Steel and Tamiya's Flat Aluminum ; Tamiya's Gloss Black (X-1) works best .

Unfortunately , I don't have any way of posting pics ( if I did , I'd have inundated this forum with pics of my builds already !) , so I can't present the concrete evidence of the beauty of this chrome paint ; it's *that* impressive !!
And , unlike Alclad , you don't have to handle the part(s) like a Fabreget Egg afterward !!
It's durable !!

So , next time you head to the local auto parts store , grab a spray can of CS-101 , and never look back !

I am not certain , Hector . I would imagine that the Chrome Spray that you have found is the very same that I am referring to in this thread : CS-101 .
I have not seen the other colour you are referring to --the Stainless Steel --but it seems like it is worth looking in to !

I've seen it at the local auto parts stores a few times, I'll have to pick up a can next time I go and try it out.

I just go to Auto Zone, and buy the chrome spray can, over the bars code is CS-101 writing.
Next to the chrome cans are Stainless Steel and Gold, looks the same line of metalizers.
Thanx for the tip!

I believe this is what you are talking about:

Make sure to get the Universal Chrome as pictured! My photos were sprayed over Krylon Gloss Black.

Thanks for sharing that video , Hector !

The results are even more impressive in person ; I wish that I could post pics of the parts I had painted on my '75 E-100 "Phantom" Van .

I have recognised the best results when using Tamiya X-1 Black as the base coat .

How does this compare to Spaz Stix Chrome? I assume this is cheaper for one-but which has the harder shine?
