Chrome shop did a great job! Care to share the costs of that work?
My ATC opinion is NOT an official FAA recognized opinion, so any advice you get from me is ONLY my opinion.

That pic of a rv in the sunset is priceless. I recall standing in the sunset looking at an airplane that I flew all day and just smiled through and through. Everyday is different no two will ever be exactly alike, I cherish those moments.

rv8 entire airframe at airport now, painting done, intersection and gear upper and lower fairings done, maybe order engine around first of year or before the next rate increase.

Look up Avery conform chrome for the real answer.
We have used the Avery chrome before.

3M just released their version of chrome vinyl last month. I'm still trying to get my hands on larger sheets to offer a lower price point on chrome spinners.

Your plane looks great!
