    Default Detailing chrome emblems and repainting

    My 62 Galaxie has chrome emblems with red, white, and blue paint in areas. The side trim is stainless with the center painted white. Cleaning them is the easy part but what can I do to prep the chrome and the stainless to let the paint adhere to it? I'm afraid of any acids for etching as I think it will damage the metal. There are crevases that are too tight to sand. I'm almost tempted to go to a hobby store and get some small bottles of model paint and use that. Would that work?
    I could post pics if necessary...

    Most paint on chrome will peel unless textured by sanding or blasting. If you son't want to sand or blast you could probably just apply some color then touch it up when needed.

    i agree with len, but even if you cant sand in the hard to get spots sanding the areas you can would be recommended also, to help adhesion
