You can paint almost anything and I am sure you can find a chrome like paint. However, the finish will be judged by the eyes of the beholder. Delrin can be painted but is not exactly paint friendly. Few have attempted to paint delrin (at least last time I checked 1 or 2 years ago) and usually from the pics I saw the finish was not that good and easy to nic with use. If you search this thread you will find a D5 top (ek delrin) painted (if my memory still serves which sometimes I doubted....).Edited by Gabrielzm - 8/25/16 at 2:09pm
