you need to stop the rust first. or sand it all off.

The best thing to do is have the bumper re-chromed. But, you can probaably sand, prime, and paint with that chrome spray paint they have out if you wanted to just "rig" it.

And polish the bumper too, where ever there is chome left, polish it with chrome polish, it will take some of the rust off. and also protect it.


Too many projects. Too little time...
