You will have to get the polished finished roughed up if you want anything to stick. Sand blasting is a good option.
Might be worth swapping them out and getting the correct ones.

Thanks. I scuffed them up and cleaned them. Then used some self etching primer and gloss black paint they turned out pretty good.we will see how they hold up. Thanks again for the help
