Here's how mine came out. Very happy with it.
Thread revival . . . that looks awesome. A few questions - This was originally chrome, right? Did you put any primer down before you sprayed on the dupli color? How many cans to complete the job?

Thanks!
Yes, I sprayed a couple coats of primer after I wet sanded the chrome with 400 grit sandpaper. I used a dark grey primer, so I only needed a couple coats of the duplicolor. I used less than half a can. then a few coats of clear gloss with careful wet sanding in between. Do not sand the color coat tho. It will lose the metallic glitter effect. Then after the clear coat fully cures, very fine wet sand any overspray and then wax. Mine still looks great

That is a lot of work to make it look good tho. If I had to do it again, I'd sell the chrome and buy a painted one!
