It's possible to do I guess. Probably cheaper than buying one of the
existing gold cars as well. But the real question is why would anyone want
to? Doing so would very nearly render the car uninsurable for anything other
than a display item, at least for new value with the gold plating. I guess I
just don't see the point of having a car you can't drive.  It might be neat
if your filthy rich and allready have a garage full of D's just sitting
there. But then again, if you were rich enough to do this, it probably
wouldn't be much of a project, as you'd most likly be paying someone else to
do all the work anyway.

Just my two cents.
