"Killer Chrome" ?
I ffound a website for a company named Alsa who has a product called "Killer Chrome" and I wondered if anyone has tried it. I watched the demo video, a 3 stage process,
which looked pretty good when completed. They show it being used on motorcycle parts which are out in the weather, I thought of using it inside on my headliner trim and "A" pillar posts.

Well, you got my attention. I was thinking that something like this might be great for many of the "pot metal" parts on the TBird. I Goggled it and found some youtube vids and then also found this Hot Rod Blog (http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/alsa...ew-146018.html) You might want to read through it. They also mentioned Caswell, Copy Chrome, so I looked up their website and it also looks promising.
It will be interesting to see if anyone here has tried either product. If my parts are steel or sheet metal, I'd probably opt for real chrome. The pot metal parts seem to be a lot trickier to chrome and I have read about horror stories with the re chroming process. I have been leaning to towards the repo new parts vs. trying to re chrome my existing.
