Can you paint chrome bumpers? If so how much ?

Can you paint chrome bumpers? If so how much ?

Postby Mooner3347 [OP] » Oct 09 2012, 12:05am

My truck is an sle and came with chrome front and rear bumpers. I would love for them to match the truck. Can this be done and if so will it last since it is chrome under the paint? My truck is white diamond so I would imagine this may be hard to match. Any idea what I should expect to pay at a body shop?

Thanks for your input

I said photochop

Its our section for posting pictures to be modified... you post it there and make a request to see if someone can paint it for you to see what you think it will look like... gives a good idea sometimes...

Painting over the chrome can be tough to do on your own if you don't have the right tools. I would for sure take it to a pro to get done if you want it to come out looking nice. Considering a shop quoted me $600 just to get fender flares sprayed, I would say you're looking at at least $1000

I am not going to do it myself. I was thinking in the $250-400 range but it has been a long time since I have had anything painted. I will call around some in the next few days and see what I can find out.

Yeah you never know...seems like places up around where I am charge a lot more than others so you may be able to get it done quite a bit cheaper. Just make sure you don't go to Joe Schmoe's backyard paint N pie house or something haha. With a colour like you have it needs to be done really well to match up nicely.
