Forty Rod,

Sharpie has gold, silver, and, I believe brass (or bronze?) markers sold separately or as a set.  Staples stocks them.

My time is booked through the weekend but I've been meaning to try the silver one on some 1:43 models with side mirrors that the manufacturers painted over.

I can report that they work well on plastic amd the metallic effect seems "true" for the width. The tips are the usual narrow Sharpie marker width, so good for small detailing.

Yeah, but the tips are humongous.  Hard to de small detailed work with them.

Hi guys thanks for your opinion's I think I am going to leave it the color it is now, but I still have a lot to do. After looking at it there is a bunch of detail from the hose reals on both sides the pump panel on the back, and the hose beds on each side of the pump panel. LOL not to mention the front grill and head lights. I think I will wait till I get my liquid Chrome pen I ordered from Amazon.

One thing I am bummed about is that even with the light coat on the bottom the imprint of Dinky disappears, I guess I will get over it!

I hope you all have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend!

Joel, thanks for the idea, I will give it a try.

Paul, wonderful scene and great looking Chrysler!

Lionlman. Nice car, I an old Buick wagon that I learned in, floated like a ship in water going down the road! LOL

Well I got my tires yesterday, but I am no where near ready for them, but its nice to know I have them now! Not bad, but not great either at $1 per tire.
