Can Chrome Be Painted?

A friend has a good deal on some Rumble Road speakers but they are chrome and I don't think that would look good on the Wee Strom.

The surface would need to be roughed up and chrome is hard. Additionally, speakers don't work well on bikes unless you are having a picnic sitting next to a parked one. Wind noise is too great and cranking up the volume will get you pulled over. Everybody around you can hear them better than you can.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

I currently used Sony in ear phones as their reduce noise 1st then place the sound right into your ear canal making them efficient and they sound great. I was just hoping to go wireless, but don't like the idea of battery powered bluetooth.

How could you make a V-Strom look worse?
