Believe it or not, I didn't. Chrome was not coming off at all, so I just scuffed it up as much as I could, as it wasn't scratching very easily, primed it, twice, and painted. Seems to have stuck pretty well, however I need to put at least 3 more coats of clear on it.

That's probably not a bad idea. I woulda tried it if I knew of that trick earlier. I tried sanding it with 150 grit, and it really took some effort to scratch it. Instead of using the adhesion promoter first, I used a sandable primer to get a good sticky base over the chrome. It seemed to work pretty well, truck went through a touchless car wash this morning, and the paint survived the high pressure water.

Thanks! It was a bit of a pain to do, but worth it in the end.

I figure it will take some regular maintenance, but that's the name of the game when you change stuff around right?
