re-painting chrome bumpers and grille black? help
got a few questions for people who have done this or may know. my truck, as you can tell, has a chrome front end and rear bumper. i hate chrome personally i would rather it be all black with a set of harley headlights. i am trying to figure out the most economical way of swapping my bumpers and grille to black, but i need it to look good. basically i have 2 options, buy all new front and rear bumpers and have them painted, which i priced at about $500 in parts alone, or sell my chrome stuff or trade for already black parts.
ORRR, and this is my real question, i asked a local shop about stripping the chrome and painting my bumpers black, he said he could do it for $300, its a pretty reputable shop and he is very confident, i just always thought you couldnt sand and repaint metal that has been chromed and expect good results...
what do you guys think?
