Re: chrome luggage rack

Powder coat with silver.

You might try using clear fingernail polish or lacquer to prevent more peeling.

Re: chrome luggage rack

I purchased my rack used from a forum member thats ride was totalled. It had a couple scratches in one area that I wanted to hide. At an autoparts store I picked up some reflective silver tape and unless you're really looking close at it, you'd never see the difference.
If you use this method, I'd suggest leaving as much of the chrome on the rack as you can. The tape will show indentations if there are any. I solved this by filling the deep scratches with a silicon cement.

HTH,
