I actually asked the guy at the local body shop about painting the bezels and he said your best bet would be to just cover them with black vinyl. Something about how you cant sand them enough to get the paint to stick??? Said they did one and the guy was back in a month with the paint flaking off. Sounded kinda screwy because I figured that as long as you sanded all the chrome paint off you would be good to go. However I am NO expert when it comes to paint and they are a pretty reputable body shop so I took his word for it. I do not know if they used adhesion promoter or not.

scythezo6 how long have you had yours painted and how are they holding up. I HATE the chrome look on any performance car and these have been an eyesore since the day I picked her up.
