well, you know. I've been painting for about 3 yrs. But never chrome, I just remove chrome, lol.

So, tbh, I'm not 100% sure, but going by all the experience, it's best to sand as it adds to the adhesion.

My buddy who ran the metal cast. Wet sanded every coat just about. I think he laid a final coat over the last one and took nothing away from the chrome, shiny effect.

mike i watched the clip i understand what they mean by not sanding. the valuve cover they used was chrome so if you sand it you will see the scratches thuough the transperent metalcast. but correct me you are strating with plastic right. and then i would lightly sand. but not sand after you put down the silver base.

ok, this is the answer i was hoping for asnd understand. so, i will just sand with 800, use the adhesion promoter, silver base, then red, no clear, and no sanding. Thank You[cheers]
