Cosmichrome!!!

So I have been going back and forth for years if I should pull the trigger and purchase one of these units or not? I know I cant make a living doing this but just as a side gig ( as if I don't have enough going on already) but for a lot of the customers I have done work for this could make me a few bucks. Not including the amount of money and time it would save ME. Has anyone here either used or had anything done with this process be it either Cosmichrome or Goldtouch. If so were you happy with the process? I am thinking of attend the class and I will most deferentially help out my fellow bolters with the best prices ever so I can recoupe my purchase price. which is only around 9k. so 50. here and there will help out quickly.

Never heard of it until now. Almost magical results, but I wonder if it's been superseded by the new chrome wraps?

PS: I really like your '52.

I'll be your first Guinea pig customer! My 51 bumpers need a refresh and I haven't yet found a decent chromer here in the New England area...and I refuse to use repoops.

Nhluvstruck . I will keep you posted on what ends up happening. I know there is a lot of work out there I am just trying to make sure it is as good as they say and it last. I would hate to put out sub-par work with my name on it.

Definitely not trying to stanch your excitement; I think that stuff is absolutely miraculous. The possibilities are endless. Make wood look like chrome - WOW!

Hi 66 rollback I tried spectrachrome 1 time with a cheap system from Na car lot had not sure if everything was still good "chemicals" The finish had a slight yellow tinge . Could have even been the user. Lol. Now I also like the fact that cosmichrome has the patented gun.

Have you tried the chrome powder coating? It comes out really nice! We did my 216 oil pan just to try it.
