Default paint question

What's tthe best way to paint the front chrome bumper?

Also the lower valance? Its textured so what do y'all do sand it till its smooth?
Mud holes are like a pretty woman with an std, you want to hit but are scared of the consequences!

4wd is like a condom. i'd rather have it and not need it rather tan needing it and not having it!

paint will stick to neither.... will not stick to chrome or recycled plastic, buy a non chrome bumper, and a paint-able valance

Hardware store sells Zinsser primer
This stuff sticks to dirt!
If you you really insist on using your chrome bumper,
You can primer with this stuff and re-paint,
But it's BEST to get a non-chrome
