    Default paint for the chrome front bumper

    my truck 05 silverado pretty much got sand blasted in the front from the beach at work one day, and the chrome is more of a silver now on half the front bumper. has anyone ever painted the chrome piece? i was looking into just painting it black and just wondering if anyone had pics of it or maybe done it before and what paint you used and how it turned out

    Well, if you paint it, it can get rock chips, etc. You might consider getting LINE-X instead.
