Default Duplicolor Black Chrome simulated in Photoshop

I've been thinking about using duplicolor shadow to black out the chrome on my truck, I gave it a trial in photoshop but pictures don't always do justice to the effect. Has anybody used this product? What do you think of the look?

Well I tried finding the link to help you out but couldnt. I saw a thread where someone used that stuff on their hood and tailgate ram emblems, turned out real nice. But also, someone commented on the thread that they had used it on their chrome bumper and it turned out with a green look.

I did my grille and it came out bad , almost green when the sun hits it right. And I took my time , did everything right from prep to paint and dry time. I think it has its place , mostly on smaller parts and anything that is not expensive to replace. Smaller parts like badges seem to come out better for some reason. I did the same prep , paint and coats on my grille badge as I did the grille. The badge came out nice , the grille , not so much. Heres my link on it , final pics are on the 3rd page

I haven't used the product but IMHO I like the original chrome better.
