For the closest "chrome" rattle can I know of is from Spaz Stix, their Mirror Chrome. It's usually used in r/c car bodies which I have used it quite a bit and love the stuff! It actually looks identical to actual chrome if done right. Here's the trick, we paint r/c car bodies on the inside and in reverse lay-down. So the new bodies are clear lexan and when you paint them from the inside, the lexan effectively is the clear coat. So I don't know how well it would work for your Star. It does like a scuff to adhere to and needs a clear coat after. One of the other aerosol chrome paints might look better.

Model Master brand model paint has a "Chrome Silver Trim" color that would look good but it looks more like a bare or brushed aluminum look. You could brush it on or airbrush it, plus its enamel which will hold up good with a clear coat.

Looks good though! Is this made of PLA plastic wire?

Oh and since this is a personal item, I don't think Mercedes can do anything about it. Correct me if i'm wrong.

Skippy~ As for perception: Drive what you like and can afford. Those who don't like it can supply vacuum to one of your components. LOL

If you need parts, I have some!
