That is fantastic! I was actually thinking about chroming the hood air intakes when I get mine, I saw a GTR at an auto show with chromed NACA ducts and it looked great to me.

Not in line with everyone's tastes I know, but I'll like it.

I would obviously never do it, but it looks like they did a good job on it. and it actually doesnt look so bad.

Needs different rims, thats for sure.

Not my cup of tea either, but a lot better than flames . Better have sunglasses when staring at that thing; it's like a freaking mirror.

+1, but full marks for effort.

Russia seems to be the new up-and-coming for nouveau riche... lots of crazy wealth over there at present.

Even though it was done in Russia, very possible it was done with paint supplied by Alsa Corp. I've seen this done on numerous vehicles, not my taste but Alsa gets credit for having some ingenious coating systems.

No paint can match real chrome.

These guys didn't do such a great job, there's some discoloration on the driver's door as well as some unpolished chrome by the rear QP.

I actually kind've like it. Get some nice HRE's or DPE's and car will be nice. I'd drive it.
