I've been sitting on this one for a while. I'm curious if you have ever built a Spaceliner, Kingfish? I don't recall one. That said I'm also researching paint colors over chrome. A big part of the build here will be the color. This frame is a red painted chrome frame and since the red is coming off already it's a no brainer. I'm tempted to try a red to chrome to blue fade and have a patriotic Space Force build, but no it can't be that easy...
Carl, my first full build off was a Spaceliner. Flex-Liner 7 in BO7. I did part some highlight paint with Metalcast red paint. I think it will give you the sprectraflame/anodized vibe you are looking for. You just have to make sure the base surface is either chrome, or use any metallic silver or chrome as a base for non-chrome parts.
I remember on my full chrome spaceliner frame, it had a factory clear coat on it. I bet that may be the case with your frame. I basically had to take a razor blade to my entire frame to get that clear coat off.
Strippers just don't work hard like they used to.
