Windshield - Chrome Treatment

Would anyone like to share their technique in applying chrome tape, foil, paint, etc., as windshield trim? Or, can someone direct me to a link where this may already have been discussed. Thanks. Cheers.

I applied chrome tape to the windshield on my Venice 90. Stick it on, and trim with scissors or an Xacto knife.

I build a frame around the clear plastic using styrene "U" channel and covered that with bare metal foil. Looks decent enough for foil.
