Default worth a squirt

Just wondering whether there are any chrome or polished metal radiators and pumps for the good old water-cooling or can you paint them using pray paint??? as some of your regulars know I do like my bling and my next build is going to have that wow factor

you could probably get some high-temp spray paint, like for an oven or an engine, and that would work?

well you can get spray paint for colouring disc brakes which comes in silver, may come in chrome too if you look hard enough?

you probably don't need high temp paint. But from my experience all the "chrome" rattle can paint doesn't work for nothing.
