Black shadow chrome wheel painting
Painting a set of alloys for a Mitsubishi Evo using a powder coated base then black spray base with shadow chrome and lacquered finish. We had the wheels powder coated because they needed sand blasting to remove old paint. Then we used a base of black and then the black chrome. Lacquered finally to seal the wheels. The effect is stunning. It cost £20 a wheel for blasting and powder and the black base paint was about £15. The chrome was £30 so about £125 in materials.
Dupli-Color Shadow Chrome Black-Out EXAMPLE
Dupli-Color Shadow Chrome Black-Out Coating paint that I just sprayed on my 2001 Dodge Durango RT 22inch rims. They turned out great, and many compliments on the color. They look different than anything around town. Dupli-Color Shadow Chrome Black-Out Coating paint morphs in light conditions. From blueish, to greyish, to blackish tints. Viewing angle also changes color.
