I used a crome paint that looks pretty good once it's clear coated. But, I'm seeing all these pictures of people's stuff with rub n' buff, and they blow my paint job away. So, I though I may give it a shot.
Man, I've looked at every Michael's in town, and they're all sold out of the Silver Leaf! I clicked the links to buy on-line, but one has a shipping cost of something like $14, and the other two have a minimum order of $25. Will I actually need $25 worth of this stuff? That's at least like 6 tubes! MY KINGDOM FOR SOME RUB AND BUFF!!!!!!
im wondering if the rub and buff needs some kind of clear coat...i've tried to clear coat but somehow it gives it a more greyish color instead of the original chrome...maybe im doing something wrong...please help?..
Clear coat isn't the best thing to try to use on it. it's a wax. You really can't coat a wax well with anything. When I tried it on my helmet, it beaded up and ran down the helmet.
If you end up getting a clear coat on an RNB surface well, then you didn't put a good coat of RNB on it.
It's basically a car wax. If you wax a car, and get it wet or anything, it'll bead up.
You have 1 of 2 options: use the RNB without a clear coat. If any of it rubs off enough to where you can see the surface beneath, just put another coat of RNB over the area. OR, you can skip using RNB, and use brush n leaf. It's the exact same thing, except in paint form. Or, you can do like I did, cover it with BNL, then use a coat of RNB, just for the heck of it. If it rubs off enough, it'll only show the silver painted surface beneath.
They have reasonable prices, no minimum order, and the shipping cost isn't crazy expensive. YAY!!!!
Oh yeah, hey sith_camaro, my armor is already painted in a chrome color. I thought I would lightly sand it, but not enough to take it off completely, then put the rub and buff on. That way I'll have the chrome under the R&B if it rubs off. Do you think that'll work?
Oookay, let's edit this ONE more time! What did you use to apply, then buff it with?
