I haven't done it personally, but I would scuff the chrome pieces with a red Scotch Brite pad, prime, paint, and clear coat. The trick with painting plastic is to go slow and layer the paint on. Too much in a single coat will cause it to run. Personally, I use Dupli-Color autmotive paint on plastic parts.

Krylon fusion for plastic is another great product but as @mikeFZR said the key to painting plastic is to go slow, lot's of patience one layer at a time.

Thanks for the tips. Any idea about the rivets? I can get pop/cherry rivets from work but unsure if they would be too strong and crack the plastic. thanks

That looks like gomer pyles ski....
as as other said scotch brite pad or very fine sandpaper to scuff. I did I coat prime, 2 coats base, 3 coats clear on my chrome hood cowling on the vxr. 2 seasons of heavy use and only very minor wear.

Pic taken the other day. At least 75 hours on the paint all salt water. Those are salt deposites around the edge in the pic not chips.

To answer your question on the rivets, Yes. It's easier to drill them out and replace them when your done
