Easy Chrome Brush or Spray on Chrome

Easy Chrome Brush or Spray on Chrome


hey everyone welcome to another episode
of custom spray mods now in this video I’m going to be using the ALSA easy
chrome you’ve probably seen the video online there’s a black fuel tank and
it’s gloss black the guy in the video brushes the chrome on and it looks hazy
and then it clears up and looks like real reflective proper chrome so I’m
using that exact same product today so I’ve got the Alsa easy chrome base
coat and I’ve got the easy chrome I’m also gonna try it in a spray can form
and try it on a few different things I’ve got these plastic speed shapes I’m
gonna do some testing on I’ve also got a push bike helmet motorcycle helmet I’m
also going to use a bumper bar from a car like this I’m gonna paint that in
the chrome and then compare it to a bumper bar that I’ve already got that’s
chrome we can see the difference from the painted chrome and the real chrome
check it out so the first step to getting this awesome chrome painted
finish is to get a great gloss black base coat the base coat needs to be
gloss and dry so I’m going to spray these parts in a gloss black from this
aerosol can then we’ll move on to the next step I’m also going to apply the chrome paint
to this bumper bar and I spray this push bike helmet in the chrome paint I’m also
gonna spray this motorcycle helmet in the Alsa chrome paint now I’m gonna
start preparing the bumper bar this is got a silver paint that’s not too a good
condition I’m gonna stand it with some 320 grit sandpaper on this machine then
I’m gonna spray some 2k etch primer this is going to help my paint stick now I’m
gonna spray some the ALSA gloss black base coat this is a 2 pack base coat so
I’ve mixed it with hardener and that’s gonna dry super shiny and glossy gonna
be a good base for my chrome paint I’ve allowed the part to dry for about three
days now Im ready starts spraying the top coat the easy chrome is ready for use
that means just put it straight into a spray gun and spray it on the job don’t
you mix it with anything else is straight into a gun and spray it I’m
using a 1 millimeter mini spray gun and spraying one medium to heavy coat over
the gloss black once the chrome paint is down you’ll see
it start to clear up and become Chrome right before your eyes the warm of the
weather the quicker we’ll become Chrome now I’m gonna start spraying my helmets
these have been sanded and sprayed with adhesion promoter now in spraying the
gloss black giving about three coats waiting ten minutes between coats the easy chrome can be applied to
anything anything that you can paint just prepare it properly and apply the
appropriate primer and you can spray whatever you want in this easy chrome
paint while I let the black dry on the helmet I’m gonna start spraying the
chrome on these speed shapes that I painted earlier on this shape I’m using
a spray gun I’m going to move on to the other shapes using different methods
spray them if you don’t have a spray gun you can
use this prevail spray can unit basically you just pour the chrome paint
into the pot attach the power unit to the top and it gives you a spray can
nozzle on the top of that then you can just use it to spray anything you want
and it’s great for applying this chrome paint over the gloss black
you only need to spray one even coat and that’s enough for the chrome to do its
job once it’s down it’ll look hazy but depending on the heat it’ll clear up in
about 10 to 20 seconds here you can see the results between the spray can and
the spray gun They both look pretty good now it’s time
to try the brush on test I’ve let this black dry for about three to four days
now I’m going to brush the chrome on I’m just gonna cover it try and get it nice
and even and see how it goes as you can see it looks really good there are a few
slight little brush strokes but other than that it definitely looks like real
chrome now we’re back to the helmets I’ve let
these helmets draw for about three to four days now I’m spraying the clown
paint on using a 1 mil spray gun it’s a mini gun then I’m just spraying one nice
even coat over the helmets that’s been give me a great chrome finish Jessica now I’ve let the creme dry for about two
days now I’m gonna spray some to k-qui over that I’m going to do two coats
waiting ten minutes between coats I’m just using my normal to build this GTI
per lot 1.3 mil nozzles spray gum so I painted the helmets they look
really good I painted my samples I’ve also painted the bumper bar in chrome
now this was just a silver the paint was really bad on it so I sprayed it with
the black put the chrome paint on now I’m going to test it I’m going to
compare it to a real chrome bar that’s exactly the same shape as this so yeah
let’s go out and check it to a real Chrome button bar see the compar now this helmet doesn’t have clear on it
so I’m going to test how’d your abilities so I’m gonna clean it with
some wax and grease remover and a microfiber cloth just to see how the
cream holds off you can see even after using chemicals
to clean it and a microfiber cloth basically hasn’t marked the crime and
still looks just as good as it did when it was sprayed now I’m going to scratch
it with the screwdriver to see how it reacts and basically it’s reacting just
like a normal paint a scratch normal paint with a screwdriver and it’s going
to mark it and that’s what’s happening now I’m gonna apply some masking tape
over the scratches over the chrome paint see if it peels off and basically it’s
stuck really well so good stuff now if you ever get any scratches or the chrome
paint does start to come off the base it’s really easy to touch up just get
your gun and spray the chrome back onto the product this is great for touching
up chrome wheels as well if you ever get scoffs enough well there you go that was
the outside easy chrome paint I painted it on a few different surfaces and it
looks pretty good I mean as a replication of chrome it I say it does
the job I mean I painted this bumper bar and when I held it up against the car
with the original chrome bumper bar you really you couldn’t tell the difference
I mean you definitely get away with with painting it putting it on the car and I
mean it’s it’s quite scratch resistant you can clean it and it’s very easy to
touch up so yeah I definitely recommend it to anyone on exterior or interior the
easing cream is really good as far as brushing it you probably get a better
finish if you spray it with a gun I used a 1 mil mini touch-up gun and it works
really good brushing it you tend to get a little bit of streaks you can run into
problems so spraying it’s probably much easier and gives you a more even finish
now you can put a clear coat on it that’ll protect it give it a bit more
durability it does take a little bit of the chrome look away but it’s quite
durable on its own so I’m going to spray some candy over these Chinon on the next
video I’m gonna spray the helmets I gonna put some candy paint on top so
gold red I’m also gonna put some black so yeah cheering for that other than
that I hope you liked the episode if you want to grab some of this easy chrome
