Scale Effect Gloss/Chrome Paint For Staff Cars ?

We often see modellers paint staff cars in military colours - using the same methods used to paint most AFV`s with realistic results, however there were many staff cars used by the military of all nations which retained their original manufacturers paint scheme of "gloss & chrome " which are alien paint schemes to most military modellers resulting in unrealistic efforts when trying to reproduce the scale representations of gloss and chrome in 1/35 scale, the large scale auto modellers have mastered these paint effects - although producing an intentional "showroom" paint finish,- which are the best methods of painting realistic looking 1/35 scale gloss/chrome factory issued civillian/staff cars with restrained urban weathering ?

TIA
