Molding fiberglass to chrome? I wouldn't try it. Your best bet would be to cover the entire bumper with a release agent and make yourself a bumper cover. I have thought a few times about making myself a bumper cover with a much more agressive look and have so far decided not to because of the difficulty of it.

yeah i figured i probably have to make a full fiberglass mold of my current bumper and then from that fiberglass mold shape it the way i want e, at least this way i know it will fit back on with no problems but gonna be alot of adding and cutting for bigger holes ect unless someone know were i can either get a stx bumper cheap or something that looks similiar without havin to modify alot , got my mechanical problems pretty much fixed so now as soon as i can get some extra money im gonna get started but one thing i got im addin is a new instrument cluster that has an rpm guage so its looks nice and stock and use some orange transparent paint so the dash will be orange at night and gonna try to do that on the radio buttons so everythin matches
