Re: Licence plate brow

Sure if you prep it well, sand it and primer first.

Like ........D47 said above


The Chrome brow can be painted.

I have a few items on my truck that are painted over Chrome.

Mirror caps.

Rear brow

Grille panel.


Each of these parts were:

Step 1: Scuffed with 600 grit wet dry sand paper ( I wet sanded them)

Step 2; Cleaned them properly washing them with some dawn and warms water.

Step 3: Three coats of adhesion promoter

Step 4: Three coats of primer


My buddy is a auto body tech so he tells me what needs to be done for prep and I do it.

I save money that way and get my stuff painted faster because when I hand the parts to him the parts have little prep left.


I did the prep on the parts listed above. The roof rails and the wheels.

No you can't rush if you want good results.
