Restoring Ludwig Supraphonic SD

This is my 1st post:
What's the bottomline if I wanted to "paint" my early '70's Supraphonic 400 ?
I understand it's aluminum w/chrome on top.
Someone at an auto suppy place said that you really can't paint over chrome & that painting over aluminum needs special prep.
I was going to scuff the hell out of the chrome & then use some type of Rustoleum or auto paint in a spray can....would I need to prime ? Auto paint clear coat afterwards ?
I guess I could spend the bucks ( I dont' have ) & get it powder coated.
What say you ?
