Satin Paint for Chrome Bumpers

I am trying to paint some chrome bumpers. Plan is to sand and/or sandblast then apply coat of epoxy primer. Looking for either a satin black finish or satin Titanium finish. Any suggestions?

Sandblasting them then epoxy then a sanding color then the top coat you want!

No advice in that area but use the same fabrication all the way from epoxy to topcoat!

If you use Sem Trim Black you can skip the primer and spray straight on the sand blasted chrome. Carefully not to cut through the chrome but just enough to dull it especially on the edges and around any holes. Then it can get filler if needed but ney no to primer.

no no no and no.. it will start to rust. even if u use a color with out enny gloss it will be a bad finish if u don't use a sanding color it wont fill anything just because its a satin color. do it right and it will look good and stay the same fore a long time.

Did you have a bad experience with the SEM?
Chrome doesn't rust He's going to leave the chrome on there...where is the rust gonna come from?

We'll your first post was asking about satin black,, and the SEM Trim black is a satin black. The reason I suggested it is because it doesn't need primer to stay on to scuffed/blasted chrome. I don't post outside my experience cause I don't want it to look bad in 10 years either..

Here's a couple pictures of SEM on what was chrome. The mouldings and door handles were lightly sand blasted and sprayed with SEM Satin Black in 1995 these pictures were taken 10 minutes ago

That SEM Trim black on your trim looks good- I'm thinking about trying it on the moldings of my '80 Malibu wagon. It was satin black originally but recently had started to finally come off in places.
