It looks good, but I'd guess it will probably chip and flake quickly and easily.

I might do mine. what about using some stripper to get the chrome off? as well as sanding. what about the use of adhesion promoter also?

I bot a toolbox today, if it fits I am going to paint it black. I might just paint it black even if it doesn't fit. When you painted your did you take the lid off or paint it all together? Thanks for answering all of our questions.
