For those of you that have painted the chromed portion of your bumper or anyone that knows how.
Is there anything in particular that has to be done to the metal after the chrome is off ie. sand or media blasting, clean it with a special certain product? Any info. is appreciated.

Hello, if you are going to do this......dechrome; media blast;repair any dents etc.; zinc chromate primer;wet sand; red oxide primer;wet sand to 400 grit: 2 color/ base coats; 2 or 3 clear coats; micro polish....and take your time for a nice job. Protect the back side too.

I agree with sir-col ^^^^^

I was lookin at doing mine. The BEST way is to sand blast it. My body guy said I could go the cheaper route and scuff it with 80 grit and use self etching primmer. Not sure if it will peel or not. :cool:
