Yeah, clearly. My point is that if a shop can do shadow chrome correctly, they absolutely will have to skills to do the hypersilver found on the various M cars as it is far easier to get the shade right.

Yup, a shadow chrome is the same multi-step process as the zcp/csl silver. I do believe Prince powdercoating here in Carolina can do it as they perfected the shadow chrome finish. Ive actually seen them do a lighter shadow chrome, which looks like a perfect match to zcps (in photos at least).

My ZCP's need some love so I might check them out, I'm in NC. Are you in the Charlotte area?

Thanks for sharing!

Im in Boone, but Prince isnt too far from you. I do know the base is powdercoated and the silver is lightly painted on in steps, just enough to have the base coat visible. They can go as dark or as light as youd like. Same process they do with shadow chrome.

The sales representative said it was a "light grey".
