Chrome out my Engine top


I was thinking about painting the top of my engine block Chrome. I wanted to know of good paint to do this, and if it is a good idea. Also do I need to use a certain color base coat to achieve the look I am after. I want it to be a nice chrome look not a cheap silver or aluminum look. If anyone has done it before can you please post pictures, so I can see how it looks. Thank you in advance for your help.

Take a look at this.

Of all the things Ive lost
The one I miss most is my mind

Its like a fart in a windstorm
It smells good but thats about it
