    I have a need to cover a clear/see-through material like glass or plastic with a mirror or chrome finish that you can still see through. Think motorcycle face plates, that have a mirror opaque finish outside, but you can easily see through from the inside.

    Hey, bro...you mean like this? You can use a motorcycle helmet, but I simply used window tinting . Find some clear PVC sheets at an art shop and apply chrome window tinting to it. It's a pretty cheap and easy way to go, and it looks great! Good luck!

    Thanks for the tip, I'll give it a shot. The mirrored motorcycle visors won't work for what I have in mind, but it's a good example of the end product.
