Paining Over Chrome With Wrinkle Paint

I want to paint over some chrome parts on my harley with black wrinkle paint.

How do I prep the surface of the chrome and can I get a good wrinkle finish from a can?

if i ever have to paint over a chromed part i will sandblast it just enough to etch the surface then epoxy prime it and paint it. as for the wrinkle finish.....well, i've never seen any kind of good finish come out of a spay can.

While i am not saying dont do it, just make sure you are going to like the outcome. I have seen some of the wrinkle paint over chrome before, and in my eyes it seems like it will be a fad. Just make sure you never want to see your chrome again!

I have been doing some small parts for my car in black wrinkle powdercoat and like it better than the paint that I have tried in the past. As was mentioned above you are going to have to prep the chrome somehow for paint to stick, pretty much good bye chrome for ever. But if that dosen't matter I would look into getting them powercoated instead of paint, much more durable.
