I recently won a Nylon pipe on Ebay, and it was in some sad shape. The chrome was flaking off and discolored. So, after having great success with some pipe racks, I decided to give the old pipe a Krylon Stome finish. I had to scrape all the old chrome off and give it a light sanding to give the paint a surface to stick to. Then I taped off the bowl and bit and set to work. Over all, I think it came out pretty good.
