Dose anyone make one?

Do you have experience with using it?

I am far too shaky to use a brush and paint and don't want to use the foil out there.

No, nothing that is chrome.  You can get a silver sharpie, but it won't look like chrome.  The "foil out there" is the best chrome option available - easier than painting and looks a lot better.

 

By the "foil", I assume you mean Bare Metal Foil.

I use one from DecoColor and it's called Liquid Silver. I found it at Michaels and it works pretty good.

I recommend the Pantone fine tip, which is probably the brightest silver "chrome" in a paint pen. Good for small detail work like dash bezels and minor chrome touch-up, but even a paint pen requires a steady hand for fine details.

Heck, I would be happy if I could just touch up the sprue cut off marks!
Thanks,
Joe.
