We have discussed hydrographics a few times in the past but it doesn't get old. Totally cool process. At least one member here had his QP engine bay covers coated with carbon looking film. Turned out awesome!

Yup, hydro-dipping, hydrographics have been around a long time, most often used to camo coat guns and hunting equipment. I actually looked into buying a tank and equipment, which wasn't much. The cost gets crazy if you want to print your own patterns or transfers.

The water based "chrome" has been around for a few years and is pretty straight forward. I come from a background of automotive paints and painting so given the low/no voc's involved and hose it on method etc., it looks pretty cool. When I was restoring motorcycles a few years back I had set up a chroming station to chrome my small bits for the bikes...I Wish I would have had this!!!

So many cool and affordable process out there now. I believe the chrome can be used on plastic. So just think, you could chrome your Maserati engine surround for major bling!

Nice catch, thanks for the post.
