Just paint the chrome ones if you don't work out a trade.
A d/a sander with 80 grit will take the chrome off or just scuff it up for paint. Use self etch primer & your good to go.

I've been in the paint/collision n custom paint industry for 18yrs, wld rather trade to insure adhesion. I'd rather scuff black bumpers, than 80g sand, etch prime, then epoxy prime, then sand again... .. . but the main reason is in the futre I'll modify the non chrome bumpers for a 4x4project, and do a SXT cover, '02 edge/xlt headlights, grill, header panel to match my sexy hood on my mazda.
