A movie called 'The Host' features a 500 wrapped in 'chrome' film:

500 Fan: Brian Reynolds (owner of Northwest Helicopters at Olympia Airport in Washington State) kindly sent me a photo of the 500 he flew in this movie but, his firm cannot publicise more info for about another month and has asked me not to post the photo he sent me till then. But, for now .. this video grab (above).
The chrome wrap used was manufactured in Germany and according to Brian .. was pretty expensive.
Those who read the Nostalgia Thread may recall my mentionings of David Thieme owner of Essex Oil who were one of the first ever sponsors of Team Lotus. Thieme's Monaco-based LongRanger 3A-MSX wore a blue coat with a scarlet and 'chrome' flash but .. from what I understand, the chrome wrap had to be specially manufactured as the custom car accessories market didn't really cater for such things in 1970's Europe!

The same colour scheme was applied to Colin Chapman's aircraft while Essex sponsored Lotus:
The Colonel with the 'Dancer' (G-AYTF) at Lydd Airport in 1980
As an aside, the movie uses Lotus cars!
