I know that painted directly on to chrome will not stick and will be bad. I also know I can get cheap ($75 per rim) black rims for my Jeep, but I want something a little different. So my question is, is there a way to paint onto chrome so it will stick and look good? I don't have a sand blaster or anything, but I was hoping maybe if I scuffed it up with a steel brush or something and got a good primer it would stick. Any suggestions?
Ive done it before. you get muratic acid or concrete cleaner and a spray bottle like a windex bottle, spray them real good and keep them wet for about 15 mins. then rinse with water, scuff with red scotch brite, clean, dry, and prime with DP 40 and paint. will hold very well.
Do you have any pictures, or would that basically give away this guy's idea and rob him of potential $?
Pretty much... It's an exremely simple concept.
They guy seems to be a very good fellow, so I'm not going to be the one to spoil a good thing. I think he owns a TJ now so he may be lurking around the boards somewhere. If he wants to post pics then that's his perogative. I made my first one out of 6" pvc, and the second one was out of a cut down 60 gal water tank. I'm happy with both of them.
