    anyone ever done it....i`m thinking of trying it, getting sick of the chrome bumpers, especially the front, its too much chrome, so has anyone? and will sanding it with 180 be good enough?

    I did my front bumper. You need to use something really aggressive, I used some 40 and 60 grit paper. I sanded until it wasn't shiny anymore. So far it's held up pretty good.

    I sprayed mine with Duplicolor (cheap wal mart) bedliner which I use on all sorts of stuff. The stuff works well if you perp the surface first and its cheap so touch up is no big deal.

    Sanded it down with 60 grit, cleaned it with xylene and sprayed away.

    I am about to bedline both of my bumpers. But they are painted so its a little easier to coat them. My push bar which I haven't had on April is bedlined chrome. You really need to rough up the chrome really good in order to get the stuff to stick. Even then the cheap wal-fart duplicolor bedliner I used would still chip off. I have 1 1/2 gallons of the hurculiner that I will be using to coat my bumpers, pushbar, floors, and redo my bed. Also if I have enough I will coat my roll bar in the stuff too.

    This is the last time I had my push bar on because it sorta riped off. :eek1: :haha: :rolleyes:

    The bumper and gaurd were both painted. I would grind and sand chrome way down.

    If your bumper is in good shape, you might be better to get a painted bumper from a bone yard. I can't imagine that they want much. Sell yours to SLOK5.:D

    If you are bed lining yourself, I highly suggest Hurculiner. I just did my whole floor in the stuff and it is awsome!! I'll have pics tomorrow.

    I have never sprayed it on chrome, just well prepped painted surfaces. I don't know that it will stick, but at $7 a can it is worth a shot.
