Removing chrome off of bumper

K so i know eventually i want to get or make my own bumper like the Road Armor ones... but for now i just want to get rid of all the chrome my truck has... is their a way to remove the chrome off my bumper so that i can pain it flat black... also if i paint it flat black do i still need to put a clear coat over it? im asking because i painted my jeep flat black and didnt put a clear coat over it because i didnt want it to look shiny and so far its been holding up..... any hints and suggestions on how to do this would be great.. im thinking of doing this next weekend....

-Raul

hmm.. I don't know of anything to remove the chrome. Might want to try sanding the chrome to rough it up and get a good bonding primer.

try a sand blaster that might get it then you could sand it down smooth and paint it

I've had pretty good luck with sand blasting. If you have access to a good blaster, you can use coarse media and then fine media and get a fairly nice finish.

you can sell your chrome bumper and buy a non painted one from any dealership.

a friend of mine had his bumper line Xed all they did was scuff the chrome with course sand paper, degrease it well to remove all wax or sealer and sprayed them to this day it still looks good with no chips or scatches.

if you could break even with less work, then it makes sense to buy even if it is temporary
