Chrome is lifting from my Filter Cover. Any idea what I can do. Thinking maybe I can peel it all off and paint it black. I don't know what caused it.

Peel it off Tex, & spray it.  Be careful - when my cousin did mine, he said the shards were sharp buggers & cut his fingers a few times.  Chroming on plastic is never the best - I had all mine done

Contaminant during the original chroming process?

Fuel vapour? I've only seen it occur on the fuel tank consol and earlier air filter cover, strange why it should happen after so many years?.
