what ever colour you are painting with, add the same pigment to some clear and paint over the chrome so it will shine through.

My tri stage paint will have a tinted clear if I understand my paint guy correctly. Hmmm
Would it show the imperfections in the chrome though? I have 50k worth of wear and tear on that piece so it is not blemish and scratch free.
If its painted the same as the tank it looks real nice that way.
I'm kind of leaning this way, only seen a couple pics of this but if masterhermits idea doesn't pan out I'm thinking strongly about this one. It would for sure show it was not factory paint.
I guess I could ask who would have a blemish/scratch free (or close) dash bezel for my 1600 if I wanted to be a slut, like Shores
