    Hey guys, I bought a set of side steps and try are polished, I want to paint them flat black so they match my wheels, I bought one can of grey primer and 2 cans of satin black by krylon, is this all I need?? Maybe other brand of paint or primer? Special type of color? Please help! Also after spraying the primer how long shield I wait before painting? Thanks!!!!!

    I would just follow the instructions on the cans as to the time between coats and the amount of coats. remember though that many lighter coats are better than a few heavy coats.

    Painting polished stainless isn't the greatest idea.. paint doesn't adhere well to stainless. You might have better luck if you roughed the surface up with some sandpaper, but even then I wouldn't expect it to hold up very well.

    I wouldn't try to paint a polished surface, why don't you try selling the polished steps and buy black steps with the money, polished steps are pretty expensive so you ought to be able to get a good price for them.
