Anyone Used the Alsa Spray on Chrome???

Hubby's restoring an older pickup, and he doesn't really want to pay re-chroming prices (plus the nearest place is a couple hours away). He doesn't have a LOT that needs redone, and one set of Alsa's spray on chrome would probably do the job, but unfortunately, neither he nor I know anyone that has used the stuff. Here's a link to what I'm looking at.... Alsa Corp | Killer Cans Killer Chrome

Has anyone used this stuff? Pros/Cons?? Does it hold up pretty well?

PLEASE, I'm not trying to be a pain, but if you haven't actually used it, please refrain from giving me your opinion. I don't want a bunch of people telling me that spray on chrome is crap. Re-dipping is NOT an option for us, and seeing as there are only 6 SMALL parts that need redone, this is definitely the best bet as far as cost. I'm looking for actual users and their opinions. Thanks!

Yeah, if we were keeping it ourselves, we probably wouldn't even consider this, but with luck, she'll be down the road within 6 months. :-)

It's just getting to the point where we're tired of pumping money into her, and if this stuff will hold for even one year, that'd be about perfect. A lot of the parts cleaned up surprisingly well, but there are a few that are still pretty pitted. And finding NOS or aftermarket parts for this thing aren't an option. At least not on the chrome ones. The truck he's restoring is an old IH crewcab, and I'll admit that she's a beauty after some time, but unfortunately, these were made as work trucks, and that's definitely what they were used for.
