Painted chrome step bars

Truck came with the factory chrome step bars. for this truck i want everything to be black. So instead of buying new bars i decided to paint them. I was going to try and said the chrome all the way down but its chrome all the way through. I taped off the plastic foot pads and scuff the surface with some 400 grit sand paper. What im spraying on it is rustoleum's truck bed liner in a spray can.
Comparison

finished on the left. still wet on the right.

this is what im spraying on the steps


ill have install pictures up tomorrow when they are both dry.

the end caps are held in with a screw and the step pads are held in with clips, they can be removed but i have a tendency to break clips so i chose just to tape them off

after you sanded them, did you prime or just apply the paint?

How are they holding up? I want to do my rear bumper, but I'm afraid it'll chip.
