    So I am going to be pulling off all my emblems to paint, and im also going to paint my bumpers. Since all these are chrome whats the best way to go about painting them?

    The bumpers im blacking out.

    The emblems are going to be candy pink.

    Spray the entire piece with the self-etching primer. Two light to medium coats will do. Allow to dry between coats. This special primer will grip to the metal and prepare you for regular primer and paint.Once the self-etching primer is dry, spray 2 to 3 coats of the high build primer over it, always allowing each coat to dry before applying another one. Thats the best you can do over chrome. It may stick or may not it's worth a shot though.:D
