    Agreed, that is an amazing finish on that! I'm wondering how durable it is though. He did comment that it doesn't need a top coat.

    Let's face it, I don't particularly care for anything 'chrome'. I prefer the look of polished aluminum or polished stainless. But chrome does have its place among certain consumers. I guess if I was going to have a chrome anything, it likely wouldn't be anything where durability would be an issue.

    Knowing how chrome plating is traditionally applied, this brushed-on product is genius and possibly safer. I know a few guys who work for the Monroe shock/strut factory in Hartwell, GA. They have to chrome the piston rods of the shocks and a few other parts. Anybody in the factory who is involved in the chroming process has to periodically have their chromium levels checked by a company employed physician. A LOT of people come out of that place with some form of cancer.
