|adkjoe||wow that's nice, maybe I'll give it a shot it can't hurt. Is that paint you can get at autozone or somewhere? If I don't like it I'll just go buy some black steel wheels.|

|mudslinger150||adkjoe, i did this to my nissan hardbody. I used SEM flexable paint in Landau black, i applied about 3 coats and that truck is always stuck someplace, paint has never chipped and its almost 2 years later.|

|2000SEWrangler||the headlight bezels are just held in by the 4 screws and just pop out then right??|
|11-03-2009 04:43 PM|
Jeepczb09 - you really want to use a paint for plastic, it's only a couple bucks at any auto store, but yes it is gloss black.

|Bigstonz||Lugnuts are the only chrome items left....and the logo on the steering wheel|

Hey!!, untill I can sell my chrome bumpers and wheels that came with mine, Chrome is great!!! you guys are ruining the market

|Jeepzcb09||Hey looks great! Ive been wainting to do this on mine but all i have is Rust-o-lium gloss black, would this work?|

|joemd60||Mine held up pretty good, I just sanded them and put about 4 coats of paint on them. It was a hot summer day so I let them bake in the sun between coats, so I think that helped and I used krylon fusion to, only flat black. I eventually want to do the parking lenses and reflectors.|

|mrcarcrazy||thanks guys. I'll give it a go when I find time.|

Probably not a bad idea but that chrome is so thin you probably wouldn't even notice the peeled spots but I see what your saying...
|11-03-2009 08:42 AM|
i would maybe use a filler or self etching primer first on the bezels 2 coats. That will help to fill any flaky spots or any pitted area, then blast it with a few coats of your paint.
|11-03-2009 08:30 AM|
I would just hit it with some scotch brite and get all the loose flaky chrome off and then just spray over it. Don't use sandpaper the plastic is really soft and it will look like crap. I used krylon fusion gloss black. I wouldn't worry about getting all the chrome off just the loose stuff that's peeling.
|11-03-2009 08:26 AM|
|mrcarcrazy||to those who've painted the bezels. Some of my "chrome" is peeling off. Should I remove all the chrome and then use a product like Krylon fusion? or is there a better way?|
|11-03-2009 08:15 AM|
|adkjoe||Did you rattle can the rims? What did you use?|
|11-03-2009 08:12 AM|
|jcjdesco||Yeah I don't like the chrome much either. The first thing I did was paint the headlight bezels. Then I went for the wheels. I found some used grill inserts that were chrome and I painted those as well.|
|11-03-2009 06:32 AM|
|adkjoe||whats left? the caps on your wheels?|
|11-02-2009 03:23 PM|
Me too! I'm 99.9% done...
|11-02-2009 12:07 PM|
Thanks, it looks so much better now.
I used krylon fusion in gloss black, sure beats $25 for blacked out ones from quadratec.
|11-02-2009 10:41 AM|
|Beast Skills||yeah i still have all of my chrome right now. i'm thinking about statrting to paint some of it here and there.|
|11-02-2009 09:03 AM|
|specbill||Looking good....'like the no chrome look on some TJ's but can also get behind those with some as well....it all depends on how the whole package is put together....|
|11-02-2009 09:00 AM|
|burton160w||I like it a lot. I'm going to be taking all the chrome off my car (tube bumpers, light bezels, etc.) and be doing the same thing this weekend. Looks really good though.|
