I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but here goes. I was thinking of having my grille pony emblem painted. The housing is metal, but the pony itself is chrome covered plastic is it not? I want to paint it gloss black, would any paint shop be able to paint something like this? Would powder coating be possible on something like this? If I painted it myself, would i need to strip the chrome first? Thanks...

It's plastic with a chrome-like-color. Powdercoating only works on metal. Take some fine sandpaper (1000) and strip the chome off. Then use some primer, then the base color and then some clearcoat. The more layers of clearcoat the less paint chips from rocks etc. afterwards.
