To make chrome step rails BLACK

Anyone have experience or tips on the best product or method? I've considered Chassis Saver, Monstaliner, and Plasti-Dip Sray. Have already Plasti-Dip sprayed my rims, and it turned out nice, and will maybe do the same to chrome bumpers, but plan on using Monstaliner on rocker panels and up over wheel wells. Much obliged for any ideas or experiences. Will get pics of the truck in my gallery when I get a camera that doesn't make it look like I was shooting thru a screen door

Considered that, but I'm on a type of Walmart-budget currently. Saw Rust-Oleum makes a bed liner spray, but I may still be stuck getting the chrome off the bars for that stuff to stick. Thanks for yer input!

That RustOleum spray is real crap, it will rub-off no matter how you prepped the rail

Only way to have it hold up is with powdercoating. Its really not expensive as long as you pull the part and bring it to them. That being said my steps on my SD i tried plain spray paint and it came off the first few times i used it. Then i did the spray can bedliner and its held up better than the paint. Still not great but it would get you by until you can powdercoat them thats what im going to do.

Thanks, Pat. Might coat em with the bedliner and see if they hold up thru deer season, then I'll have the extra to do them right.

Youd have to remove the plastic because powder coating needs an electric charge through the metal for it to bond. I MAY be wrong because im not a powdercoater but my understanding is its for metal only.

Plus when you remove the plastic and powdercoat it, it adds a relatively significant thickness to the metal so the plastic may not go back on right so you should check that
