    Hi guys,

    Here is my latest project courtesy of a good friend who asked me to have his MP chromed...

    There were some flaws since the MP was pre-painted... but on the other hand... we did try our best. I was really proud of the chromed rubber parts specially on the mini megatron!

    Comments and suggestions on how to further enhance these kinds of projects are very much welcome.

    ummm one question, how much would it cost to have this done?
    It's amazing and it'd be a dream to own

    I think you should have stripped the paint with thinner before vacuum metallizing.

    It looks like the vacuum metal will crack/chip/flake the moment you try to transform him.

    Will take note on that. I was just really afraid of damaging the MP given that we havent chromed an MP before. Many thanks for the suggestion sir. Its very much appreciated..... :)
