painting chrome

Is there anyway to remove the chrome from the interior door handles? I'de like to paint them black on my 73 crew cab, but I don't wanna sand it down as it will leave scuff marks from the sanding. Do ya'll know anything that will either remove the chrome or make it paintable?

We don't have many chroming shops around here, but we do have custom bicycle shops that do chroming. I'll have to give them a hollar and see what they can do. Thanks for the suggestion.
The whole point is that I don't wanna scratch it up too bad. I want it looking real smooth still when I paint it and not all scuffed up.

Well if you want it smooth then you should prime it then sand the primer smooth anyways. It takes chemicals to get the chrome off though. There is a chrome shop there in Corpus, not sure where but there is a guy there who gets aluminum motorcycle wheels dipped in chrome somewhere in corpus.
Why would someone chrome aluminum wheels Sam?
