On a slightly off-topic - "plastic chrome" - I was reading about how they do that. Seems fiberglass is a VERY popular material to "chrome"

hmmmmm.....

A "new Airstream" look for the whole trailer????

How would you chrome fiberglass? I thought it was an electromagnetic process?

If you are chroming metals, it IS an electroplate process. However many of the "Chrome" parts on new cars are not metal.

Here is a you tube video of a shop "choming" a fiberglass reproduction part for a hotrod grille:

I now have original 1970's stainless steel beauty rings on Eggy-Sue.The plastic chrome ones checked and turned green from the copper coat under the chrome surface. My hub caps, which are like Norm and Ginny's, are in need of replacement. Thanks to them for the source... good price!

After being frustrated with "baby moons" that would not fit, I went to "full moon" wheelcovers on both trailers. They are from hubcapmike.com.

Is that stuff non-toxic? The applicators aren't wearing skin or lung protection

1, Most new cars have very little metal. 2, I need new hubcaps and have also thought about full moons or discs. 3, Those guys probably don't care about what they are breathing.
