Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dmcc280z Shiny, if you have the patience.
This is the middle coat of the three step process using this product. The idea is to create a contrasting background to the chrome spray. You need to have a really smooth surface and an even coat of the jet black as a base. The recommended drying time between coats is 24 hours. So anything you paint will take about 3 days. The finish is bright, but you will not get the brilliance of chrome that you may anticipate. It is a decorative paint, so keep that in mind. It's shiny, if you have the time and patience to do the job.

It ain't chrome but highly polished metal. It's what I wanted. They got another kit that uses silver for real chrome look.
This suits me fine

I used this to paint a really large old metal frame I have and I wasn't overly committed to it being perfect. So I simply used a high pressure water hose on the frame, let it dry and then sprayed it with two light coats of this Killer Chrome paint. Super easy and turned out great. There are some imperfections because of my lack of prep but I knew that going into it and I am ok with it. Looks just like chrome and I will be trying more of their product line for future products. I allowed a day between coats but it felt dry to the touch after 2 hours and I could have applied another coat at that time. Nice even application, just read and follow the directions.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jaseony Big disappointment
There must be something really special about the polishing cloth that was supposed to come with it, because I could not get the dusted on paint to do what the instructions said would happen. I followed the instructions and tried it twice. Didn't work. Looked like brushed aluminum, at best. Checked out the Killer Chrome video at Alsa's website but it wouldn't play.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sammie Pretty good but not 100%
I used this on a metal plant stand and was expecting a chrome shiny finish that didn't quiet come out that way. It still looks good, but it isn't what I would call a 'chrome' finish. It is shiny and silver and it works ok for my project but if you are expecting a mirror like chrome finish you might be disappointed. Spray is even and smooth with no overlapping lies and dried pretty quick. It took a really long time to arrive in the mail.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Eh...not as good as alsa's other kit
I'm not impressed with this version of chrome paint offered by alas. They have better systems available at an added cost but it's worth it while this is not so much worth the time to try and get chrome out of a rattle can. Everything would have to be so perfect to even have a chance at a chrome look that it just is not worth the effort...in my humble opinion...I'm just not impressed at all. I ordered the recommended base coat black and had the Mirra clear and it just absolutely did not turn out favorable. It's a disappointment in my book of painting experience since it just simply looks like a silver finish with metal flake appearance...and honestly, it's what I expected after using their patented chrome FX spray system which turned out absolutely great.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by madfish918 Not what I expected
I have used other Killer Cans spray paints with great results. So I was excited to possibly find a realistic metallic finish spray paint. This, sadly, didn't turn out to be the one. Like the other reviewers I used the recommended Jet Black Basecoat and Mirra Clear topcoat. However, I still was unable to get the result of a mirror chrome finish. The Mirra Clear gave me a shinny topcoat. Unfortunately, it was over a matte silver finish.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by QDES Decent finish, but not exactly CHROME
Smooth and shiny finished texture, but not the mirror chrome look I was hoping for. For the price, I give it an "Average" value rating. Looks good, for a Chrome alternative. I'm still happy with the product; will be purchasing more. (Be sure to get the black paint that it requires.. It makes a huge difference in the turnout.)
