Painting the front chome piece of grill

Im wanting to change the color of my front chome piece of my grill and i was wondering how and what would be the best way to do it. I was thinking about smoking the chrome and was wondering if anyone had any pictures to show me how it would look. Help me out.

I actually just finished painting my grille today.It looks pretty good.Im going to put it on tomorrow.Before,it was plasti-dipped and it looked pretty good,but faded and it would not come clean.So,I pulled the plasti dip of and painted it.It is really easy to do. I just followed this http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...ng-grille.html

I know this is an old thread, however i just painted my chrome grill with basecoat and clearcoat dupont and it turned out great. I will say make sure you sand well i went over it with 220grit and then with 400 grit to prep and then sprayed with bulldog adhesion promoter right before painting. Turned out great, doesnt look like it will even need wet sanding but ill know later tonight when i get home.
