I personally love the look of matte white and chrome on a vehicle and want to do mine using these vinyls. Short of calling the department of motor vehicles, does anyone know if their is a restriction limit to the use of chrome. I have seen many gas tankers on the road, i.e. SHEETZ Trucks. I have looked all over the web and get many varying responses. I want to add led's under car, reflective touches for our company car look. Thanks for help
Depends on State Laws, In Pennsylvania the Chrome is fine but ornamental lighting is an Inspection violation, only proper DOT original lighting is allowed. Not saying it isn't out there. In PA they take it off for inspection then put it back on.
Thanks, Avery is down the road, literally. Wish you could just walk in purchase, but fully understand the importance of being loyal to distributors.
That chrome stuff would CRAZY on a chopper!
It sure would ! I had the installer order a sample to see how it installs, scratches, etc. Might just go "chrome Crazy" this fall. I am going to use etched glass material with cut out designs for visablity on back door windows
LoL, hope it goes all well. We're looking into it from here as well=)
under car lighting is def illegal in mass just ask my nephew he got a ticket for it. There is also a specific percentage of tint that your not allowed to go over so I am not sure if cut out designs fall under that category if the rest of the window is blocked
I have seen a couple chrome cars on youtube they are pretty sick looking but prob over the top for daily driving I am thinking of matte black with some chrome or white accents for my 300zx
love to see the finished product
I've installed chrome cut vinyl on several truck doors, sleepers boxes, a couple of racecars ,etc.
If this is what you are referring to , it does scratch easily, does not conform to curves very well and definately does not conform to rivets. I have used Avery, Oracal and material from American Traffic and safety. Some of the chrome is like working with heavy duty aluminum foil and other is so thin that it will tear trying to weed it.
If you have found something a little more forgiving the info would be greatly appreciated.
A tip - make sure it is UV chrome .
Avery has added it to their Supreme Wrapping Film line of conform vinyl. It is supposed to be as easy as the rest of the colors which we used for two full busses so far and many vehicles. Watching the videos, they use a lot of hand applying with a glove lightly sprayed with soap and water. I just watched chrome cars on Inside addition, weird timing as I was writing this when it came on. Is Legal, but painter of chrome cars makes you sign a waiver releasing them if the car causes a crash due to reflection. $40,000 for a car to get 100% chrome painted. Second Thoughts but it will get A LOT OF ATTENTION http://www.carwraps.net/ My Lincoln Town Car has nice curves for this look, IMO
