    Default black chrome?

    Im wanting to colour code some of the badges on my car (vauxhall boot badge, 2.2dti badge and sri badge). Ideally I'd like to paint them black chrome but cant find any useful details about the availability of a black chrome spray paint! Does such a thing exist?

    You could try tinting them, with the spray used to tint rear lights as it is translucent
