    Can't be any tougher than painting chrome bumpers. I sanded my (bumpers) with 220 grit paper, cleaned them with lacquer thinner, shot them with two coats of adhesion promoter and then black bumper match paint. They've taken some good bug hits and have been cleaned with a pressure washer and it hasn't come off yet.
