Chrome Paint

Was farting around the net came across this, I know LGM does RC (i do to) So maybe he could give us a idea how this stuff is. If he's used it before. Makes me want to start a new project =) Chrome boy maybe.

That 727?? 737 looks pretty shiney but I dont think this suff could realy come that close to the mirrior like chrome boy. However, I would realy like to see how it looked, I might just concider doing something like that with my JS1000WH. looks very durable... maybe a working mans chromeboy, WITH the ability of a wooden body

If somebody wants to figure out a way to get their product shipped cross border, I'd experiment on a body for ya

Sorry I haven't been around as much lately, and missed some emails, things have been going nuts around here lately :P

Ok, I finally got ahold of them and heard back thismorning.

Here is the problems for guitar use.

1. Durability, it is not meant to be handled, it will wear quite fast

2. It needs to be sprayed over enamel, that is the worst possible paint to use on wood as it cracks worse than laquer.

3. it can't be clear coated with anything but water based clears or it will be affected. Water based clear is not very durable either.


Unfortunately, when looking for a cheap alternative to the real thing, generally all you end up with is something cheap

Lots of places in the US have it, but you can't ship laquer across the border without paying for dangerous goods and I'm not spending $5000 for a dangerous goods license for a 1oz bottle of paint LOL

Yup, it was direct from Alclad. And nowhere on that page did I read it was tough or durable. Here is the actual email I got from them.

Thank you for your enquiry. Alclad is primarily a finish for static display models which will receive little handling,it has the best rub resistance when sprayed over a model-type enamel-Alclad Gloss Black base or Testors black enamel. Auto clears will degrade the finish,however water based clears are alright. Skygrid in Ontario are the best source for Alclad in Canada 519 742 6965 Terry.
