Man that looks awesome. I wonder if you can do that and how much it would cost? Probably big $$$. In a place like that, it would almost be camoflaged.

had me wondering then I saw how dull and low light the area around it looked. If it was in that crome colour it should have looked a very dark silver tint to match it surroundings.
Anyway if its some consolation it makes nice wallapaper.

It's actually a mercedes calander. I'm not convinced there fakes though, there is an article somwere that describes it and that the car is actually totally electroplated. If it was one picture, then maybe, but the amount of time, effort and research that woulda been put into each individual picture would be enormous if they were computer generated. It'd actually be alot easier (and probably cheaper) for mercedes to actually electroplate the car then to get them computer generated to that quality...

Yep I was wrong and heres how it is done


Basically, the plastic is etched to give it tooth, then it is "sensitized" with a palladium chloride, or tin chloride, or sequential application of both, which leaves receptor spots on the plastic. Then electroless nickel (actually autocatalytic nickel) begins depositing on the receptor sites, and upon it itself. Then the parts is plated with several layers of nickel, then chrome plate.
