All the chromes are pretty fragile paint. The most important step is to handle the body with kid gloves and wash and dry it carefully. After it's washed, don't touch any part that will have chrome on it. Spray it in very thin coats. It dries fast. Once you have enough layers of chrome, then wait a good couple of hours before you back it. Then once you've backed it with faskolor black, back it again with Faskoat. That should help the finish stay put. Even so, it's still the most fragile of all the paints I've ever painted.
