One hell of a good looking truck you got here bud. I think the front bumper would look sick also! Keep up the good work. By the way, this modification stuff never stops so I hope you're ready! You should check out my ride sometime, let me know what ya think.

I've painted over chrome before, and you've just gotta be sure to rough it up real good beforehand. I'll be using adhesion promoter as well so it should stick pretty good.
