    If they were previously painted, Sand Blast them.

    You can get a cheap kit from Sears or Harbor Frieght.

    Otherwise, if they were chromed, scuff up the surface with 120 grit sandpaper.

    Be sure to put on several light coats of paint, then two coats of clear.

    How about having them powder coated black.

    Powder coating would definately be the most durable.
