    Well you could always paint it. I painted mine. It was chrome, now black. I used Rustoleum Textured black and I have had it on there about 7 months and it holds up quite well.

    Ya I sanded mine by hand with 150 grit sand paper then with 220 grit. Then cleaned it with alcohol. Then just painted it outside the temp was about 85 degrees. I did about 4 coats with the spray can then let it dry over nite then installed. Still holding up well.
