What Covering To Use for the Chrome on my T33


HI Iam building My new T33 and would like to do the Chrome covering with the painted T-bird stripes. Can anyone tell me what to use for the chrome and where to get it? Will Chrome Ultrakote work, can you use an Iron at all on the foam? And How about the Black Baron Presto. I cant get either locally any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks Joe

Presto would be better for the foam as the iron will easily melt it if you run the temp too high. I have covered a foam fuse with Oracover once and it worked okay with the temp set low - yet it could melt it if kept still for a couple of secs.

Havent done a chrome finish yet myself so cannot comment furter.
