    I think black would look better than chrome....rusted or not.

    i'd be concerned that just painting over what you've got would chip as it continues to rust underneath. probably want to do some refinishing, if you will, on it first. maybe use one of the antirust-primer paints and then paint it black. that would be my route were it me.

    Powdercoat it!! Eastwood has a coating (in black, silver, red) that will stop the rust and is UV protected. Look for their rust ecapsulator. Can get it in spray or brush/roll on. Stuff is pretty thick and works good. Hit it with a wire wheel and just spray, brush or roll on. Ive used the stuff on wheel wells, under hood, and push bumper. So far, its lasted a couple years with no rust seaping through.

    dry/overspray more than likely, common with rattle cans... maybe run a little 320/400 over it quick or a scuff pad to knock it down a little before proceeding.. Or, Blast away... :D

    Well, if you pull it off and brought it to their yard, it would probably be $75 or so.. That what my local guys would charge... Maybe check your phonebook under "sandblasting" and call a few places, tell em what you got..

    Is it not coming out the way you want? PM me if you wanna talk about it... :D

    Well, I don't have clue as to powdercoat costs, but a few in here are very experienced with it... I'd assume you'd be looking at $100 to $200 but I may be way off.. I will tell you tho that powdercoat is pretty unrepairable,, if chipped, etc..

    As far as paint goes, you'll wanna knock down the bare steel with a sander of some sort, or at least run over it by hand with something in the 150 to 180 grit range.. Then get a pisscoat of zinc primer on it.. But we can go into that more when the time comes...

    I had both my bumpers blasted and powdercoated a couple of weeks ago, locally it cost me 350.00. The finish is excellent, tuff and kinda bling (went with a metallic silver). Now if I can just get the body coated :doah:
