Nice!!! A quick question Brenda.I'm painting my plexiglass dome soon and I was wondering. That crome pray paint you're using. Do you think in would work if i used that on the entire dome not including the panels? Would it come close to Calvins shinny aluminum dome?

Hey Thomas, Thanks!!! If I were you I would get a sample piece and sand it with at least a 600 grit sandpaper. And prime it afterwards so the Paint will stick, I'm not sure how it will stick to Plexiglass my Dome is a different plastic. The chrome is very picky what you put it on put thin coats on it about every 10 minutes.
