Questing about painting

I bought this license plate frame and I want to paint it black. It's metal and I'm guessing it's polished, not chromed.

I have a scuba diver in the center of license plate so I thought it would look kinda cool being in the center of the teeth :headband:

Should I sand it, or just hit it with adhesion promotor and paint it?

I would sand, or steel wool it to rough it up some before painting. Don't think it will stick otherwise.
I am not childish, you're just being a poopy head!
