    Default Can I paint over chrome

    I want to paint the running boards that I'm going to buy for my Bug to match the body, but they are chrome. Can I sand them when 120 and apply epoxy DTM primer and paint them?

    Good Morning Tony,

    I would recommend sanding the surface with 180 grit sand paper, then degrease with our Pre painting prep. Now I would say you are ready for Epoxy. This way you have a nice mechanical bond for the primer to stick too without being too aggressive. I hope this helps.
