Is that chrome or nickel? I've seen that some of the filthy rich sheiks in Dubai have Audis and Mercedes' with bodies that are made completely of silver.

I believe that is actually a laminate that is put on. The vehicle is not even disassembled.

CKelly's right, it's paint. I watched somebody paint a car like that on TV once. It's a CRAZY process to watch and can't imagine trying to do it. If I recall right there were two guys and at least one if not both had paint guns in both hands spraying.

 

Now, these days they may actually have a film like the body wraps to resemble chrome but I'd bet that one is painted.

I've seen bikes totally chromed like this in person a few times, and was totally UN-impressed.

 

The chrome looses it's punch, and sort of all blends together. If you see the bike on a cloudy day, it looks like a white bike. I think chrome needs some contrasting color around it - just my opinion though.
