Newer automobiles have this on both exterior and interior parts. Like the Nissan emblem. It has close to the look and shine of chrome on metal, but it is plastic.
Where can I get a coating like this?

Plastic chrome has been around for as long as I can remember, its used on cars, bikes, toys and a ton of different things, try googling "plastic chrome Platers" or "plastic chrome electroplating"and see how you go....

I have looked into those spray units. they have some mini set ups but they are close to $5000 and go up.From the quality of chrome these days it forces most to use polished stainless for a lasting shine but if I could re spray my chrome every winter( now we are talking). hahaha  The costs I have been quoted on the "Spray chrome" is a lot cheaper than a show dip.  Be well all

Alsacorp Killer Chrome. Spray can or kit. I don't know anything about this product.
$49 for the spray can. not sure if you also have to use their base-coat or clear-coat sprays with it.

alsacorp.com/product/killer-chrome/

ps: I tried duplicolor chrome but it didn't come out to be anything near chrome. looked more like aluminum.
