What is needed to make chrome a matte finish?

I am planning to make the chrome on my Night Train a matte silver finish. Should I plan to get it powdercoated or can I just scotch-brite the parts? If I do scotch-brite, what would I need to do to protect the parts? A search has been attempted but matte finished chrome does not seem too popular...
