You can paint the chrome trim just like anything else, but it will not stick as well as a prepainted surface or the bare plastic sections on your grille. On that same note, unless you use a high quality paint (yes, you can get fairly good paint in a spray can)it will chip easily and flake with abuse from road debris and bugs. Either way,prep your parts thoroughly(make sure you sand them very well and or use a red scotchbright pad for the hard to reach areas) and use a good midcoat adhesion promoter(Bulldog can be bought at automotive paint supply stores and comes in spray cans). Try to stay away from the WALLY WORLD spray paint, spend the extra cash and get it from a supplier. I've had the painted for years with no issues. The extra effort makes the difference
