My experience with any metalic paint and clear coat is that when the clear coat hits the metalic (chrome) paint it will litterally lift the metalic paint and revese it so you will end up with a gray primer colored paint. Well that is what happened when I painted a bedframe with metalic silver paint and thought I would "protect" it with a clear coat. Really sucked considering the time and effort put into stripping, priming, and painting (10 coats), then to clear coat it and have it all reversed.
