Default Chrome paint ...

I ran across a demo of that new chrome paint on Jay Leno's Garage site ... a video showing the spraying process and results. I have to say, the final finish is jaw-dropping. I never would have believed a paint could give that kind of shine and reflection. Amazing stuff.

I was completely resigned to painting my plane until I saw that pic of Jim Ellis' beauty. THAT really turned my head. Now I'm thinking like Bob C. I could have an RV masquerading as a Globe Swift!
