Making a chrome Material while displaying the Texture?

Okay, sounds a little confusing, but I have a piece of armor that has a neat texture on it, however the texture is a simple 2d image that displays a faded metal. I want the metal to glow like chrome to resemble a real metal like material, but I want the image of the texture to influence where the metal fades. Any ideas?

can you maybe clarify with some images?
