I've painted my grill a total of 5 times now, and I can say with 100% certainty that the reason your grill is chipping is because the shadow chrome doesn't have very good adhesion to your substrate. The moment I put on primer/adhesion promoter, I stopped getting chips. Plasti Dip will work just as well, but if you want to use a gloss paint, just use some primer first!
