Maybe you're using a different product than me, but here's one of mine I did a while back, the "raw" silver top coated without any noticable alteration of the reflection.That could be the case, but from my own tests even as close as last week, I can tell you that 2K over raw unsealed chrome will look JUST like that.
There are certain ways you can seal the chrome to keep a good mirror finish, but on this helmet? I would be willing to bet they didn’t seal at all... maybe my opinion would change with further photos, but that remains to be seen.
Small detail that in the end doesn’t really matter I suppose. If/when I do this helmet I would probably idealize certain things. No orange peel of course, and a brighter aluminum/chrome. For my tastes, I would want the aluminum areas of the face to be brushed as well, which it clearly isn’t in the film. Comes down to preference I guess.
