Anyone know if Future works okay on a chromed car, specifically a JL pullback? I'm putting some decals on a red chrome Camaro and I want to know if I can seal them with the old dip-n-drip Future method, or if it'll dpo anything weird to the finish...

thanks in advance...

Rick, I used 3-4 coats of Future floor wax on a bunch of mine and never had a problem at all (I never do the "dunk em and hang em" method.

Thanks for the link Pug_WD. I didn't know you could do this?????

If you want to create your own shades of transparent colors, food coloring can be mixed with Future for the desired effect. Tamiya clear colors work well as toners also. If you mess up, you haven't invested as much money as you would combining clear paints.

For those gold tinted canopies on contemporary jet fighters try adding a few drops of Tamiya acrylic gold to a couple teaspoons of Future.

Hmmmmmm....might be an issue if you botch the future Rick. I'd do a test on a turd and see how you like it.

One uses ammoniated products to remove both Future AND chrome...right?
