I've seen some really good chrome paint jobs, but be warned, if it is as good as i'm sure you're aiming for (like a mirror) its illegal many places. I'd assume mostly because of the sun reflecting off your car and blinding someone, so check it out first.
But a fully chrome car is one of the coolest things ever. I wouldn't imagine it would fade much, you'd just have to wax alot to make sure it does't get cloudy
bleh i dont think anyones going to bust you for an entirely chrome car.. i think it would look really neat but the only thing i'd worry about is how bad every little door ding would show up and how big of a pain it would be to keep clean
Anybody wanting to do large pieces with a product like Mirra chrome doesn't know what goes into it. I have used it on motorcycle parts and other small objects and it is really expensive and time consuming. First, all the parts need to be done in gloss black. Then they need to be wet sanded and buffed to a PERFECT shine. ANY imperfection - even a small 2000 grit sanding scratch or a thumb print will stick out like a sore thumb. Once those parts are perfect, then you wipe them done with isopropyl alcohol (lightly as any marks from the cloth will show up) and then you dust each part individually with the mirra chrome. Right after dusting the piece, you hand rub it with buffing compound and a cloth. After all the pieces are done, you clear them. Very labor intensive and the paint is spendy. As for durability, just as good as normal auto paint.
