Painting Stainless Steel

Anyone successfully paint stainless steel? (CJ hinges in this case.) I've read everything from hitting it with a scotch brite pad, to 200 grit sandpaper, to wiping it down in a mild acid solution. I've even heard Easy Off oven cleaner would work to give the paint something to stick to.

I'd like to hear what you used successfully. Thanks!

There is really no difference in painting mild steel and stainless..most think its a different situation because alot of stainless parts are polished so they always "assume" its just as hard to paint and keep it on there as a chrome finish...but it is not...

if it's polished..hit it good with a 220 grit to get give it a good adhesion surface and go about painting it with a good primer and top coat as you would anything else...
