I saw a chrome 427 Cobra yesterday

I have never seen a chrome car before. It was driving out of a car show I went to yesterday. I don't know if paint can imitate chrome but it looked pretty convincing what ever it was. It was gone before I could get a picture.

Also could have been polished aluminum. Not my cup of tea. I like the Tangerine just fine.

Yea it was not a wrap. Maybe polished. I did not like it anyway. I guess they can paint it after a few tickets.

More like a little time with a heat gun to liberate the wrap from the underlying body...
