And by place he means "garage". ;) And by free labor he means "free added entertainment value". And by party he means "flat Odouls". And by the photo he means "winner of inaugural MotoGP in Texas".

Oh. Come. On. That ain't chrome. That's highly polished aluminuminum....metal. Even I wouldn't cover that up. Immediately.
