    yeah i used a white then grey primers then the chrome then the lacquer but as soon as i used the lacquer it made it go like a dull grey , then i re did the whole thing again only useing the chrome after primer and it gets marks in it when i touch it like a dull mark , maybe the paint isnt taking too well ? its a night mare lol ill add a link so u can see what i mean in my albums
