The actual chrome plating is only a few microns thick. Sand or media blast would be my suggestion although I've never done either to chrome before...

I personally love the chrome bumpers. Actually the more chrome the better when it comes to my taste

i looked into swapping out my front 73 plastic bumper for a 71-72 chrome........i like the look better

but, it was gonna be too much of a hastle........

i could have gotten good $$$ for the 73 front bumper with all the brackets.........
