yes, you can tell a difference. In addition to Alsa Corp, HOK (House of Kolor) also makes a chrome paint. The chrome paints are very expensive, and very tricky to use. Unless you absolutely MUST have chrome in your paintjob, there are other alternatives for really cool custom finishes.

I was looking at the paint as an alternative to chroming the wheels, swingarms, ect.

Think you would probably be better off in the long run having them chromed as opposed to painted.. Paint might not stand up as well as a good triple plating of chrome would.

the application method for the chrome paints will not work well at all on things like the wheels and such. You would be MUCH better off chroming them, or (IMHO) even better off powdercoating them gloss black for that "stealth thug bling" 8) Powdercoat is VERY affordable, too! :bigthumbsup:
