Chrome deleting window trim using spray paint?

Obviously, a lot of people de-chrome their window trims using wrap, but I don't like the idea of wrapping it as it's fiddly and I'd be scared of scratching my paintwork due to being too heavy handed haha.

Has anyone every primed and sprayed their window chrome black?

IF anyone knows of anyone in Kent who can wrap chrome window trims I'd be interested in speaking to them too. :)

Thanks

Looks good. Definitely thinking about PlastiDip or paint spraying. Easier to Mask off areas than risk scratching paintwork.

I have plasti dipped my A6 but after few days it started to flake off and hang down like drapes due to rub of rubber seal around the doors.
I wouldn't recommend that.

Some guys used tape for this.
There is some online to dechrome trims.
I tried that with regular electrical tape, as it was quite elastic and matte finish but it turned out to be pita in the rear/lower boot window trim corner.
Ditched that and left with chrome

As I thought of maybe coming back to chrome so didn't want anything permanent but if this isn't an issue for you, go ahead and spray it on as this will be the best and reliable solution.
