I've tried a couple different "chrome" paints and have attempted to cover them with clear of various types. The chrome goes on as a bright pewter color (not too bad looking, but nowhere near a polished chrome look) and and gets duller the more you try to finish or handle it.

Meh, grey is grey. A nice glossy clear over metallic silver looks better. Don't waste your time or $ on any spray product that pretends to be chrome.
