so im about to paint my forks and cranks chrome, and i was wondering do you clear coat chrome or leave it be? now when i paint shit blue or red or white i clear coat it, than wet sand it and repeat, untill its smooth.. what have you rattle caned/rawed out?

Good question...
I doubt you'd want to clear coat it... But I hope someone wiser than I could shed some light on this, as I'd like to do a chrome with a trans color laid over it, but I'm not too sure it would stick...

chrome spray paint sucks. it's too watery and runny. I rattle can alot Look at my bike check to see my latest creation.


I'm on the vital legit list!

don't clear coat chrome, they'll turn into like a silver or something based from my experience. BUT i use cheap rattle cans though.

Yeah i wouldn't use clear, the last time i used chrome spray paint and clearcoated it it just turned into a dullish silver color.

Make sure you get a good paint though because the cheap stuff sucks ass

Strip your frame to bare metal and POLISH IT FIRST. Chrome spraypaint honestly looks like crap.

Polishing your setup and then a solid clear would look way better. Polishing will take a while though.Or save money and have it plated.
