    Nice! There have been a few discussions about that film. I sure am glad you posted pictures. Can you share the source with us?

    Wow! Now THAT is something I wasn't sure I'd ever see.... Very cool. It's actually not bad and hopefully it gets better!

    Interesting. May I ask what supplier you ordered the film from? Looks like it may have some potential...

    @K2Concepts @studebaker @MidOhioHydrographics
    To be honest I don’t know the source yet ,it is from Taiwan that I know .It’s not like regular films I have used till date as it works without any activator.

    There is this Taiwanese person near by who contacted me through internet and he got me the samples .I can find out the source from him he claims it’s his friend who made this and he wants to sell this as bussiness.

    But here is some problems this does not work on solvent based paints and need only water based paints .When I compared it with regular chrome it is not as clear as chrome a bit hazy not very clear .

    I asked him about the price of the film many times but did not get a answer for that I believe it is going to be a lot expensive then other films .But I will get to the source and share info as soon as I get it .As I see some potential in this as this is a environmentally friendly alternative to chroming

    I believe I seen Dan Zhang on fb advertising the films that take no activator. Just lay it on the water and wait for the 60 sec and dip. I'll try to find the video

    pretty cool, but I'm not liking the small defects in the film.. I'd be interested too. but rather then dip a chrome look, why wouldn't a guy just go with super chrome, or similar product to get the same look?

    I have people ask if I can do a dipped chrome .I say no. I've never seen a film to dip and make something look chrome .if there is please advise. Alot of people around me would want it.

    @WolfBandit30 if there was a cheap and easy way to dip chrome without the harmful chemicals the automotive industry would be falling all over itself to use it...

    We tried Super Chrome... wasn't successful for us anyway. Spectra Chrome was a possibility but the initial cost is killer. We also tried Alsa Chrome. Same results at Super Chrome. Not sure if it was just me or what but I just couldn't get it to work correctly. I know guys have, I just couldn't get it down.

    This is my go to method for chrome jobs... Link to VVIVID Vinyl Chrome Wrap film. I always keep it in stock.
