    I know there are some who absolutely hate chrome, especially on the henkei line. Personally, I'm pretty indifferent about it. I was wondering though, what would happen to the chrome if someone were to spray it with some dullcote? Has anyone tried it, and how did it turn out?

    Yea, I think it's more about how the chrome is used. I mean on Sunstreakers motor it really looks good. The grill on Prime another good use of chrome. Car spoilers and Grimlocks neck are an excellent example of useless chrome imo.

    I am one of those poeple who loathe chrome.

    It scrapes off WAY too easily.

    I'm going to have to go with Peanut on this subject. I think, when used correctly, the chrome can look great. Sometimes they do tend to go overboard on slap chrome on whatever they feel needs it. Which I tend to dislike.

    So is anybody going to reply to the thread starter's question or are you going to sit around and discuss which figures the chrome looks good on, for about the 20ieth time?
