How to Tint Chrome?

I'm getting a set of Chrome depo projectors in the mail in the next couple of days, and I was wondering how difficult it is to tint the chrome?

Or the reflector?

I was going to use Krylon Glass Paint to tint the chrome so it looks something like gunmetal (some of the chrome still showing through). Brex's ride I THINK has something like that on his headlights (the top part), but with blue tint rather than black.

I'm also planning on using amber Krylon glass paint on the reflector to tint it to look like a stock orange reflector. Anyone know if its better to spray the front or the back of the reflector?

If you spray the front (the cover rite?) it will look more amber from the outside.
Personally I won't color it amber and keep it clean. I'd buy some chrome coated amber bulbs to match them. But that's just my preference.

Btw, where are you getting your Krylon glass paint?

I'm trying to go for a slightly modded without looking extreme look. Yeah I plan on painting the actual reflector.

I'm getting my paint from Artcity.com
