Alclad isn't too bad. But it's not the same clarity of chrome as Ultimate Mirror Spaz. But you can get it.

Alclad works fine but I have also ordered up some of Jon's paint including the chrome to try.

They also offer cans. Dont know if they always did or if its a new thing as i always used spaz. They offer a 3 oz for and 4oz. The pricing makes no sense though as a 3oz bottle is 10-12$ and the 4 oz 28-30$

4oz. is liquid for airbrush use.

Is this the Alclad paint to use on the inside of rc bodies to get the chrome effect?
