Painting hardware?

Recommended Posts


the tailpiece Im looking isnt available in black which I realy want as I dont think chrome or gold will suit the finish. Woul I be able to paint the tailpiece using car paint from a rattle can?

Hi Chaps....

I think you would have to sand down the chrome metal finish first so that there is a ruff surface for the new paint to stick to. You would have to get that chrome off - some metal shops have a method of doing this by blowing it with an abrasive, which you could get them to do!

I wouldn't paint straight over the top of the metal though, even with a primer/

I have no experience of special "metal" paints either so i can't say how good these are!
