has anyone painted there window trim?

I was wondering if anyone has just, straight up painted their chrome window trims to get that shadow line effect...and if so, have there been any problems? (chipping, fading, etc...)

240 is not too shabby with clearcoat. I wonder if anyone has done the glossy black.
