So think I'll need to be giving either these or my OEM chrome ones a respray.
Has anybody attempted spraying their own? Whats the best way to proceed? (I.e. any tips on which products to use prior to painting and any finishing clear coats to use?)
I sprayed mine to go anti-chrome. Get a multi pack of sandpaper from an autoparts store (something around 100 / 1000 / 2000 grit combo pack) and once you've knocked the chrome off wetsand to a smooth finish. I used Dupont Acrylic clear coat over Rustoleum Metallic Indoor/Outdoor. You can use Dupont Acrylic, I just found I liked the blue better on the Rustoleum. Then I hand buffed with a microfiber towel and some compound/polish. Took me 1 Sunday afternoon and the best part is if you screw it up, sand it down and respray!
Sorry for crappy iPhone pics.
