    the only chrome vinyl i know to have a long outdoor life is gerber's deluxe silver....it's extremely expensive and i'm not sure what sizes it comes in or if it's a good option for wrapping...

    Chrome vinyl can not be used to wrap. It is a different type of vinyl, it also discolors with heat. That car is painted. Looking for a neet effect use chrome illusion paint.

    No way you can wrap a car with chrome vinyl and I don't know why you would even want to bother with that when there is Chrome PAINT out there. Ever try to use chrome around compound curves.. it's a SOB... The cars in that video are no doubt painted. If you were to take a buffer to chrome vinyl you would more than likely rip it!

    I'd sure like to know how to make chrome vinyl conform to all those curves. Does'nt seem possible.

    Probably something like Alsa Corp spray chrome with clearcoat.

    How do you know those cars are wrapped? Does not look like it to me. Maybe they have some special film but no chrome I have ever seen would be able to wrap a car. Why don't you find out the people that did those and ask how they did it?

    I did'nt say I did not belive you, I said that I have never seen any chrome that you could wrap with. Obviously they have somthing that you can wrap with, I just don't know what it is.

    Same here. I wasn't calling you a liar. I have never used any chrome that seemed soft enough to stretch and conform to panels like that.

    You got me interested now. Please post when you find the company that supplies it.
