Suggestions to chrome an R1

I need to chrome an 2009 R1 to look like this.

http://www.topspeed.com/motorcycles/...ure292875.html


I looked into it and found out that chrome paint from alsa corp does.
http://www.alsacorp.com/

Has anyone done it before, how much paint would I need. The people at alsa corp told me a pint would be good, which costs around 500 bucks. Also any good guys for the job, and an estimate of how much it'll run me.

I hope I never pass you on the road after you do this; my retina's would never recover.

Beyond that, it's your bike. Rock on.
