I'd love to see a video of it Geoff, I assume it's like the airbrush video where he decanted the pen refill?

I had a hard time trying to tell if it worked well in the video...? I watched the Krylon version...looked like it did not work at all was more like a aluminum look paint.

I think it largely depends on the surface its applied to Mark. If I was using the spray can or airbrush I would try it very lightly over a high gloss black. (as Alclad)

That is what I was thinking Gary buddy. I have heard of some paints by(Spazticks?)that does a decent job but never used any of it myself...its pricey stuff.

Well, based on the glowing reviews here ( are you blokes on flat rate or commision ?) I've ordered a pair. Since I've got a '55 & '56 Belairs at the BMF stage, and who are not cooperating, I'm keen to try it.

They work a treat! They're not a replacement for BMF, but they're a great addition to the toolbox.
I'm delighted with mine.

Been reading how you all were praising the chrome markers, and wanting to try one for small details, I bit the bullet and got one from Amazon. Being metrically challenged, I ordered the 2 mil, figuring that'd be small. When I got it, it seemed a tad fat, but it laid out the chrome so well. I ordered the smaller 1 mil. Those are really the cat's rear end !
If anyone is still wondering, they work GREAT. Go ahead and get it !
