Again, I say, Is there any way to blacken Chrome?
Thank you, in advance.
scuff it up and paint it black : P
Yeah. .. . . . .. . THAT would look nice.
Nothing short of actually paying to have them black chromed, no. There's a difference between black chrome, and black enamel... but you knew that.
Yes, black enamel would scrape right off and make it look like crap. :scowl:
Having them black chromed would probably cost a lot more than buying black hardware. I'm cheap, and trying to find a way to NOT have to buy new hardware.
possibly look into DIY powder coat sets....
i know summit racing sells them for plating cars
Yea, Powdercoating would be the way to go IMHO, but that wouldn't be cheap...
There's an adage in hot rodding, that I think applies here:
Q. How much does it cost to build a fast car?
A. How fast do you wanna go.
Question is, how bad to you want black chrome hardware?
As a matter of fact, the Eastood Co. has a DIY powder coating system for small parts that costs less than a decent spray gun. Then you won't have to stop at black - you can do all of the other colors, metallics, and clears.
