Hi Tarnis  this is my brass etch bending tool not the cheapest but well worth the money and was bought locally. You may be able to get it cheaper on line. Just been using it to bend the wipers on my Grand Banks

The build at the moment is almost at a standstill and will be for around 2 weeks. I may have chance to snatch the odd hour.

All the new hand rails are rebuilt they need tidying up and then cleaned with a metal cleaner. After that a brass etch primer will be applied and they will be left for 3 days to dry. Last picture is the rib but not happy with the grey scheme now back in white primer for the moment. I intend to try various  chrome finishes on a scrap piece of brass to get the best finish.

Have you looked at some of the chrome paints used in the full size custom industry.https://www.stardustcolors.co.uk/chrome-paint/141-chrome-effect.htmlHave never used it but it looks like a really good finish although very expensive.

HI Guys looking at chrome pens by Molotow and chrome plaint by Alclad. I have contacted Molotow now awaiting a reply. While all this going will be back on the build next week. It is certainly 1 step forward and 50 back with this model.
