Ur better of buying a new chain. The only way paint would stay on there is if it was powder coated. I cant see paint staying on the links for too long considering that they constanly move and slide against each other going around the gearing, plus i dont think it would hold up with it being greased.

When shadow powder coats their chains do they do it while the chain is put together? or each different part then assemble it? Do they even powder coat it or what?

my friend painted his chain. you have to clean it really well and it will stay on except for whne you hit it. but the rubbing form constant movement doesnt usually rub the paint off

It's fine to paint a chain. Just make sure you get ALL the grease off first. I just painted mine and it looks awesome. I started by hosing it down with WD40 to loosen everything up, then I wire brushed it, then sprayed it with carb cleaner. After it was looking pretty clean, there were still cruddies on it here and there, so I brushed it more, and eventually took it into the kitchen sink when the lady of the house wasn't watching. Lots of Dawn later, it was clean enough to paint. Prime it if you want the paint to stick, do acouple of coats to make sure you get everything. Then lay down the paint and it'll look great.

Disclaimer: It is a chain, so certain parts of it are going to wear the paint off real fast, but the plates should stay looking good.
