hyperblack trim

I just got hyperblack CSL's on my 'vert and I'm loving the look, but as always one thing leads to another and its got me thinking...
I think the chrome trim where the roof and windows meet the body and on the kidney grills would look amazing in matching hyperblack paint. Does anyone know where I can get that paint, and how I would need to prepare the trim for it.

While I'm at it, I think perhaps I should do the mirrors too...

Update - had a hard time finding a paint shop here who had heard of black chrome, let alone who had any experience with it, but then I heard that WestCoastCustoms had just opened their Dubai branch. Dropping in this week to see a guy called Dave (reassuringly) and find out how overpriced they are...

Have you tried chrome rattle can with some spray tint from a hobby shop. They usually put it by the model cars.

You could try a few coats of tint spray followed by a few coats of clear for protection. Not sure if it would match but you could find a few spare chrome parts to practice on. Good luck.

If you find a shop that can pull it off, it's not going to be cheap!
