Painting chrome

If I were to want to paint my grille surround from chrome to red so it matches, will I have to completely get rid of the chrome?

Yes but they make a paint/primer type spray that you can get but i dont remember what its called right now but it like bites into chrome and makes it paintable. Or you can scuff the hell out of it. I did both on my rear bumper i buy that was chrome
