Does that adhere to the chrome? If so I may be running some ideas through my head.

yes it does adhere to chrome, I will be doing my bumpers and step rails also to match the grill. I will be putting my final coat of tint on in about 10 minutes, I will post more pics with the final coat prior to the clear coats. I wont get around to the clear coats till and mounting till Friday

I tried that stuff and apparently my finger is to heavy for the can because mine ended up turning almost black after 2 coats and then the clear. Hope you have better luck and from what I can see so far - you are doing great.
