I tried it on my muffler tips. Wasn't pleased.
The more black tint you apply, the more it just starts looking black. I think I just got a bad tip on the rattle can, cause it came out splotchy. I tried out their metalcast orange tint (kinda the same thing) and it came out great.
I also, didn't use adhesion promoter or a prep spray to take off any oils on the black chrome, which could have helped is stick better.
Its pretty cheap, I'd be willing to give it another try.

Check my Sig. Didn't add too much so it has a blueish tint to it. I think I'm just gonna powdercoat them black instead.

I didn't like it, tried it a couple times but never liked the finished results. Didn't look like black chrome at all. It has a greenish look to it, but I'm not a professional painter either

I think it's pretty good. You have to really get an even coat on it to get a nice finish. What are you thinking of painting?

Plus, without proper prep, then sanding and buffing afterwards. It's not gonna have a smooth finish

My advice then would be for you to have them powder coated black chrome instead of using a cheap rattle can. It'll have more durability and look a WHOLE lot better.

This stuff I would recommend for headlights, "chrome strips", interior, etc.

I used the shadow kit to paint my headlights, interior door handles, and shifter bezel. I love the way it turned out.

Lol. I did eddy. All I used was adhesive promoter, the black chrome kit and clear coat. I painted them last October. Still look pretty good. But know I want to paint them black so my rotors can stand out more.

No sanding. You can't sand chrome wheels and used the shadow kit. You will see the sand marks. That's why I just sprayed it with adhesive promoter instead.

with the shadow kit or metalcast (colored) you can NOT sand the surface. It gets rid of the "shinyness" Remember these products are just tints. They need the surface to shine through. To get the paint to stick, you need the adhesion promotor to act as a clear glue.
Here's a pic for reference of the orange metalcast. Similar application...

I agree, I guess there was misunderstanding with the post I made earlier. You can't sand the surface but you can wet sand the clear coat after you've let it dry for a few days. Then buff everything out.

Although, if your not really experienced with painting than I suggest not to do that process. It's really time consuming and if you sand to hard than you will go past the clear coat and have to do the WHOLE process all over again. Which isn't always possible, especially in your case.

PS: If you do plan on wet sanding the clear than you will have to go through: 600, 800, 1000, 1500, 2000, and finally 3000 grit sandpaper using light pressure(make SURE to clean the surface after every grit) . Followed by compound then buffing polish using obviously a buffer.
