take it to ANY body shop. theyl coat it with plastic primer, the color you want, then a clear coat. itl cost about 150$ and come with a warranty for show car quality and high temp clear coat. cheaper shops could probably even do a decent job for like 80$.
i painted my cover i sprayed the color and then with a Q-tip i rubbed the paint of the toyota emblem and the other letter to bring the chrome back out and then i cleared over it. here are some pictures
94ttt, did you even prep it?
reguardless how you prep, using scotch pad with prep paste or sanding with 320-400 grit sandpaper, the chrome paint will come off in the prepping process, I actually do both, plus I use a special pen that has thousands of glass strands and use it on and around letters and tight crevices, so sounds to me there was no prep work,
yes i preped it i used a scotch bright pad and went real easy over the lettering, then i wiped it down with wax and grease remover, then i sprayed it with bulldog, a adhesion promoter and flex adgent. Then i sprayed the cooler and used a Q-tip dipped in the reducer for the paint and rub off the the paint from the letters. After drying i layed the clear. This was not done with a spray can.
