If my other half saw that, I'd never pull her away!! 

 

She's easily distracted by shiny things!!

Nice until you encounter it on a really bright morning when the sun is low on the horizon.

I predict burned retinas.

that matches the theory that FOCA said. I wonder how much it would cost to do the car?

 

Surely its an illegal modification for road use, as it can be blinding to other road users?

Also seen a Chromed R35 GTR - Mark who owns MGT Racing, his bro in law has one. Awesome car.

I think its made out of pvc or something like that (similar to stickers) so it could be removed, in theory.  I suppose if it was done to a brand new car it would protect the paint from scratches etc, and when it started looking "scabby" you could do it again or remove it to reveal the "like new" paint underneath

 

I once bought a van that was fully sign-written, it belonged to one of those double glazing companies and part of the conditions was the sign-writing had to be removed, it was a nightmare to get of, it took days, the best way was with a kettle to get the stickers off (slowly) and tar-and-glue to get the remaining sticky residue off  

 

Driving/ Inside the silver car the main problem would be the sun shining off the bonnet, this could be fixed by not "silver wrapping" the bonnet/ fitting a carbon-fiber/ black bonnet  bonnets were painted black in the 60s to stop the sun blinding the driver (eg- Lotus Cortina) i think a black or gray carbon-fiber bonnet would not look out of place on a sitver-wrapped car

 

The silver "mirror" on the back of the car would help stop the cars behind you dazzling you with their full beams!

 

I suppose you could convince the wife she could check her hair/ make-up before she even got in the car :lol:
