Painting Stainless Steal Bars

helle,

id like to install my ARB snorkel. but that black snorkel looks very ugly on my black TJ beside my stainless steel light bar.
now i want to paint the light bar black.

how do i do it? do i have to use sandpaper before? which color would be the best?

or would it be better to powder coat the light bar?

thanks for your answers:
nicolas-eric

Are they chromed or polished? If just polished, you should sand them up and then paint away(or powder coat). If chromed, you'll need to get them stripped.

There was a thread about painting stainless steel some time ago. Think they said powder coating is the way to go.
