    If I have learned anything with these helmets, leather suits, etc...if something is going to go wrong, it most likely will (at least for me anyways.)

    I would like to know what your using, and do you have a background in automotive painting?

    Hi Nik,

    I'm searching hi and low for Cosmichrome services in the UK for my Firewire Thomas build, but the only place I can find are quoting twice what you paid. Would you mind telling me where you got this done?

    Chrome spray quoted me 200 for a Thomas FireWire V2 and glove plates. Sending it off any day now.

    Re: Helmet chroming options

    Thanks Nik,

    And you were really happy with the results right?

    a place called caguitars who specialise in chroming guitars, quoted the high price. I thought they might be a good option as the finish was bound to be of a high standard, but thats a LOAD of cash.
