chrome spray paint is extremley hard to get right and never looks "Perfect" personally id just repaint them silver as I think in all honesty it could look a little tacky

iirc guardtower sprayed a part of his dash with his chrome paint, there was a picture not that long ago.

If you do decide to do it, make sure we get a pic, could look brilliant

Just bought a spare set - can you talk me through the best way to do i GT please?

I am thinking, rub down with least abrisive wet n dry i can find

Prime (grey plastic primer)

Chrome spray - loads of thin coats

Clear laquer - loads of thin coats

May drop the laquer tho,

What do you think?

Keep the lacquer mate i think thats where i went wrong, i had a go at doing the mk2 mondeo badge in chrome but went completely wrong as i spilt me curry on it when it was wet, but would have looked great if i had have lacquered it (n obviously not spilt korma on it) :L

Good luck!!
