yep, blacked the tip on the exhaust also. thanks for all the compliments. this project has been done for about 2 months. i started by sanding all chrome pieces with 320 grit sand paper. then i cleaned and degreased. then i shot with duplicolor self etching primer. let that set for 30 minutes and then shot with krylon bbq and stove paint. all my material was bought at napa. the only adhesion problems i have had are on the rear bumper. the plastic top piece that sits on top of the bumper expands and contracts with heat and cold of the day and night. when this occurs it scratches the paint back down to chrome along the edge. it is very small, probably only 1/32" wide spots and only in a few places. it still bugs me and whenever i see it happening i just touch it up. probably have done it 4 times in 2 months. for the time it takes to do it, it's been well worth it for me. to me the red and black really set each other off.
