Taillight chrome is gone ...

Forgive the dirty car ...

I started with RUSTOLEUM Peel Coat. Fortunately it live up to its name since it didn't want to properly coat the "plastic chrome" of the taillights. UN-fortunately, I tried a few other things before realizing that KRYLON FUSION paint works great on this stuff, so up close and personal, there are flaws in my paint job, but only someone who pays a lot of attention to detail (like everyone on this forum) will notice.

Again, forgive the dirty car ...

That's the first thing I did to both of my Camaros. How about the Chrome Camaro on the front fenders, are you painting them too?

Probably not. I want to leave a LITTLE "chrome" on the car ... around the grill bow tie, the tail pipes and the CAMARO emblems on the fenders.

Besides, I don't have the patience to tape off the lettering and do it properly. As it is, I rushed the job on the bezels and messed up a little. I'll probably have to pull them off again, sand them down and repaint them so it's "perfect."
