Must be the latest and greatest.Was surfing t.v. and caught a glimpse of Pimp My Ride and they described this new finish...Something about an acid being involved.Bumpers are plastic so true chrome not possible...but I have seen plenty of plastic chromed...Am a littrtle confused. Definitly the best silver paint job to appear CHROME.:)

Hey folks, I be willing to bet this is polished aluminum, not chrome. Just like the DeLorean and numerous aircraft over the years. Too cool!

The De Lorean was made of Stainless steel, I beleive. And our bumpers are made of PLASTIC ,Scott. So it must be a wrap or new paint system we don't know too much about.Maybe I'll catch a rerun of Pimp My Ride where they painted a veh with this system. C-YAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!! :) And I have seen an original bodied Arnts style Shelby Cobra (aluminum body) that is FULLY polished.

True, it's a **** good job whatever it is! This might be the ultimate finish for us in the desert, it might reflect more heat & UV than white? Not that I would be doing it anytime soon...
