This is Tere. Read in paperwork original owner ordered the bumpers be chromed. They look dirty & I would like to shine them up. I tried some Mothers aluminum wheel polish with power polisher to no avail. Any one have suggestions short of having it done professionally at $70 an hour at a plating co. Price would range from $500-$1200. I can afford sweat equity.

Clean thoroughly and powder coat them to match the silver paint, or any other color you like. New coaches have body color covers over the steel front and rear.

Getting bumpers re-chromed is one thing. finding some one with a stripping tank large enough for Barth bumpers is another.
