Go to the auto part store and look at the paint section and you will find a porduct by VHT that preps the chrome with a etch coating for painting. I use it all the time for restoring Cougar and Thunderbirds because the front grill on them can only be purchased new with chrome. I have used this product now for 3 years and have not had one person come back about the paint coming of the grill work.
