    I have a chrome T-Rex grill. I would like it to be black. There is a Powder coating place near my house. Do I need to sand blast the chrome off? Or what do I need to do? ;)

    you shouldn't need to have it completely taken off, and most powder coating shops should be able to do the prep work necessary for it to be ready for coating.
