No, not even seen chrome spray tbh, can't imagine that it will look as good as proper chrome though. I'd be interested to find out how it looks chrome sprayed.

trust me mate don't try to spray it there is only one way to apply chrome and that is to dip it whish means you would have to get the trim made up in metal which has to then be copper plated so the chrome will adhear to it which is red hot and in liquid form when applied. spray will just never look the same. chrome can be sprayed but never has a flat mirror finish like dipping.
