Re: HOW TO: Paint chrome trim

Looks sweet. Shoulda done black with red letters but looks good either way. To each their own.

Just ordered a new SRT-8 grill and am about to paint the door handles. It turns out that the Jeep dealer is unable to get the rear door handles in PRH. So I'm going to just paint the chrome part of the door handles satin black to match the trim and the roof rack.

Speaking of PRH (inferno red crystal pearl), I was under the impression that PRH and PRJ were the same color. It turns out that PRJ is just "inferno red" and PRH is "inferno red crystal pearl". The confusion arose because they are listed as the same part numbers as far as touch up paint goes. This is because they are very similar. Unfortunately I painted my trim and bumper PRJ when the rest of my vehicle is PRH... The difference is noticeable. So it looks like I'll be painting everything over again

Nope. My only issue is the clear I used on the trim pieces did not harden for almost 2 weeks which allowed rain water to etch the surface. I highly suggest using 2K Clear as it is a 2 part paint. There is a capsule of hardener inside the can that you "pop" to rupture it then mix it all together. The paint is great and will harden just like normal auto paint in a day or so. I used it for the bumper and it worked great. I guess it does not matter though as my basecoat is the wrong color and an entire repaint of the trim and bumper is coming soon.
