The chrome markers are old news now, but I am super happy with this experiment, so thought I should share. I have been using these pens on a number of things since getting them, but I had these BBS E50`s that I got a while ago for no specific car, and decided to try something.

These BBS`are from Uli Nowak. Resin centers painted silver first and drilled out (badly), the holes are bigger than the stem on the nuts so no issue.

This is a really bad picture of the difference between Mica Silver and the chrome - the chrome one is on the left, but more clear later - because of my stupid phone.

All four chromed up.

Here it shows a bit better, and 16 nuts are on.

In natural light. This is such an easy way to do mesh wheels like this, and the end result looks better than in these pics. Damnit, need to find a car for these asap. :occasion14: The spokes do get a bit bulgy, but it looks very convincing when looking at them.

The main issue with these markers is that you have to move fast, its liquid after all, and finish what you are doing in one sitting, In this case one wheel at least. And they take a long time to fully cure, dont know how long but it seems they can be man handled after 24 hours at least. Super fragile finish at first, any touch ruins it.

Nice job there, they look really good. This marker sounds like it's a really neat product.

looks pretty good, i think those wheels will look good on cars from the 70's or 80's, and maybe some from the 90's

That looks very promising. I wonder if the marker is suitable for chrome touch up on chipped chrome grille. I would love to use it for adding chrome surrounds to windows. The metallic silver marker i used before is too dull and not reflective enough to simulate chrome plating.

Still trying to find somewhere here in Oz that is not charging $30 + for 1 pen. Really want to try these Molotows though. I also just bought some Ultra Bright Chrome bare metal foil. I have never used this stuff before, but seen some model makers get great results with it.

This thread should be a stickie. A chrome marker is what I need to restore some of those ancient models which have tarnished chrome. Thanks for showing the light.

Just make sure you leave it alone for a long time when drying, also probably as dust free as possible since it cures slowly. I have the 2mm and 1mm tip versions, and the 1mm is the best buy if you are only getting one pen. The 2mm just doesnt get into those corners well.

It really does look like chrome though.

TK is my tire pimp. :) He doesnt offer these Ignition Model tires, but he knows I like them and when he finds a set he sells them to me for a lot of money, lol. It seems noone except IG bothers with tire details.
