It can be done, but unless you have experience with painting I would recommend just having a body shop do the work.

i would recommend powdercoating them it looks just a good as paint plus it lasts so much longer. It is also hard to paint over chrome so i wouldnt recommend that in the first place. all you have to do is pull your bumpers off along with allof the plastic on them and take them into your local powdercoating shop.
