Mirrachrome is simply the finest ground metallic pigment available anywhere. This assures a near mirror-like finish every time. A far cry from other would-be chrome spray paints which do not deliver what they advertise. Applied correctly, this material can produce a finish that is about 80% of the look of true chrome. It is a little bit darker than true chrome and about 15-20% less reflective than true chrome, but it is very close. You can see your reflection in it. This is not silver paint. Combined with the candy colored top coat, included in this kit, the result is a beautifully colored chrome-like metal finish, that is light years beyond any standard candy paint job.
