Flake it off with your fingernail. Any kind of abraisive, scraper, or chemical will damage the plastic. I'm assuming you're talking about plastichrome, found on grilles, window mouldings, etc.

Thats basically what I'm talking about.
The chrome is in good shape, no cracking or peeling unfortunately. I just don't like the look.

You can paint it black if you wish. Treat it like new plastic, read the sticky in this forum.

But remember the outside of the plastichrome will eventually flake off in the following years

OK, cleaned things up with alcohol and lightly sanded with 800 grit to give the paint a little bit. Used Dupli-Color and will see how it holds after its set a day or so.
