Make a chrome Edge Pro 7 even MORE chrome?

Doing a RG1527 refinish project, and replacing Cosmo hardware with all-chrome is a big part of that. Unfortunately the chrome Edge Pro 7 just isn't chrome-y enough. Lots of little black bits, as you know. Here are my ideas for this:

Chrome spray-paint:

- Fine tuner thumbscrews (just the top of the thumbscrew)
- String lock blocks (just the tops)

Replace with Diablo-Tuning stainless steel or titanium:

- Saddle lockdown screws
- String lock screws

Thoughts? Warnings? Every tried any of this yourself?

With the spray-painted parts, I fully expect the paint to rub off eventually, so I'm on the fence about doing that at all. Those may have to stay black.
