I got some 6 inch off road lights that have black covers but the outside of the light is chrome. I want to paint them black because personally I hate chrome and leave it to the hummer drivers that are around here. Any tricks or tips I should know about before I try and paint them? Like how much should I rough them up, what grit sandpaper should I use, and if any of you have already done some painting, what type of spray paint should I use?

Thanks folks

There is a particular type of paint used to paint over chrome.
I can't remember what it is (there is a certain type), but check with an auto-body paint store first.
They should be able to steer you in the right direction.
