Removed the bumper pad cleaned the chrome. Sanded it with 150 grit then used acetone and wiped it down then I primed it let it dry and sanded it with 1000 grit. Then used tack cloth to wipe it down followed by charcoal lighter fluid and a rag and painted it. No clear coat, only because the entire truck is going to get repainted within the next couple months.
