My last BrickLink orders (parts from three shops): New wheels (some from the "Cars" sets) and some chrome parts.
About this creation
With the "Cars" sets we finally have three new cool sets of rims for new 4-wide models. But until now you had to buy one of these sets to get some of the rims. I was looking for the new wheels at BrickLink for some weeks and then finally some of them where there in the catalog. I ordered some of them immediately. :-))
And as I was already there buying some stuff, I ordered some chrome parts to pimp up one or another model of my collection. One shop had the rims, another shop had some chrome wheels, some classic wheels, the wheelbases and the tires and a third shop had some nice other chrome parts...
The wheels: Classic wheels with white studs, crome wheels, wheels with "Y" spokes (Finn McMissile), wheels with 8 spokes (Holley Shiftwell) and hubcap wheels (Luigi & Guido).
The chrome parts: 4 rollbars, 2 motor blocks, 2 1x2 cheese wedges with grill, 4 1x2 holding plates
That's what I'm talking about: Some bling-bling for the Cobras:

Wow Nils, I found this today, what a surprise, almost 5 years ago. So what has happened with your chrome & wheels lately?
My Daytonas have chrome wheels and bumpers, the Spyder has a chrome windshield frame. The Cobra now has chrome "side pipes". "Twin Mill" has a lot of chrome parts, too. The rest of the parts are in the boxes waiting for a suitable project. :-))

what do you search on www.bricklink.com to get the chrome wheels & other stuff? do you just search chrome?
I found one store coincidentally when I was looking for other parts. Then I found Malte Dorowski's tip to search for stores with "chrome" in the name and found more shops: http://www.bricklink.com/memberList.asp?searchLike=L&storeName=chrome If you already know which category of parts you are looking for, you can also search for Item Type: "Parts", Category: "..." and Colour: "Chrome Silver"
