Anyways, the paint job cost around 40k.

It justifies itself when I make $ back from people/companies that want to use the car. I've been paid from magazines, photographers and had hundreds of requests from other companies that want to use the car for various things. Im in talks w/ a toy company to produce models of my car to sell in there line of cars for example, whereby I would make a certain percentage depending on how many units they sold.

Yes they sell chrome in a can. When I saw the picture of the car I rushed over to Canadian Tire cleared out the whole shelf. Once I got home I proceeded to paint my 95 M3. However with undesired results. I believe he is using better quality chrome paint from Home Depot, I'm on my way to clear out their shelf. I believe with $240 investment of Chrome In a Can I can achieve the same results.
I will keep everyone informed. Brb.

Great job on the car Chris.

Seen it at the Sema, but would still love to see it personally one evening.

The paint saga continues;
Now it's 2:22am Wed morning I have sprayed the entire car with the last Chrome in a Can paint. I came to a conclusion that both Canadian Tire and Home Depot Paint did not achieve the results that I wanted. Now letís not all be too hasty with my work. Iím waiting for the paint to dry so that I can water sand the entire car and then polish it in three stages. Man this is lot of work.

I think you should puke over yourself, learn to respect what other people have done... What have you acomplished in your life other then browsing thruough forums and convincing 12 y/o's that you own the cars you list and post pictures of? Oh yes, you got your other friends from the kindergarden to make accounts on max and create an imaginary world for yourselves.

Damn, thats why you never replied to my friendly email about taking pictures of your car, because other photographers actually pay you to take pics of it
