Depends how you paint them. Plenty of online sources for painting metals/chrome. Just takes some extra prep/finish work to make it adhere and last.


Keep it simple stupid

i just painted the chrome bumper on my 4runner. i scuffed it with 80 grit and spray painted it, so far so good but i imagine it will eventually start chipping off.

Duplicolor makes a paint for chrome. It's actually a translucent paint, so the more coats you put on, the darker it gets. Pretty cool stuff.
I was watching a video this morning by Eastwood where they were powdercoating translucent colors over chrome. REALLY nice effect.
If I ever ask you if you want me to be honest with you, say no.
