If I recall correctly, there was a lot of interest when the Tata Indigo Marina was launched - the car had been sprayed with the chrome finish in the US. This was meant to be a promotional excercise.

I'd even visited the website of the paint manufacturer, but can't recall details... sorry boys (try Googling it).

Ciao!

i`ve seen a yellow accent with HR reg.,with no alloys but painted steel rims
(yellow ofcourse lol)
.it has a fake fiber spoiler,the one that luks like the alluminium one,painted,again yellow :P
n the best part,the owner is a 50 yr old UNCLE (approx.),whu luuuuuvs to listen to loud music wit windowz down.....hehe.....he`z got a very interesting ICE setup, (atleast fr his age)....he`s got one sub,pioneer 305 i guess, and a pioneer DSP ,n all that ,amp. n speakers n i guess a screen 2...pheww.....lol




off topic....BTW,wudnt a chrome effect painted car be more accident prone???? coz most of the ppl here in india wil either confuse it with the back ground or whatever coz it`ll be reflecting things like a mirror does.rite????(like sum small jewellery shops have huge mirrors ,so that it can reflect the whole shop n make it luk bigger)
getting my point guyzzz???????????

I think the car you are talking about here has been by Autopsyche but the colour is Orange not Red. Had seen it once in Def. Col. long back.

Talking that's no photoshop!!!

@islero,arush that marina is not photoshopped.
here's ratan tata standing next to the chrome marina.


its painted with a special chrome paint manufactured in us. its one of their exotic finish products. they got lots of other interesting paint too like colour shifting paint, special effect paint, aluminium finish paint etc. Even 50 cent is getting his lamborghini murcielago painted with they chrome finish.

the website of the company is www.alsacorp.com.

I know arush would love this. looking forward to see one of your beauties covered with these paints.

Hey, This JYOT design sardar ji seems to be really popular of a sudden ... there is a post of a Vivaish Palio in the modification section which has been done by JYOT Design and needs to be categorised as the "WORST MODDED CAR 2006 ' .... maybe Autopsyche needs to give him training on how not to create such over creative designs/kits for cars .....

All those who missed that thread go check it out .... !!

Cheers
