    Do you mean the irmscher bumper strips ?
    If you do i think they would be a nightmare to paint chrome.
    Worth a try as it's something different.

    Do you have a sport bumper mate, cos if so they dont fit properly on the front, there only meant for the none sports front. They can be molded to shape and held in position with a good adhesive but as shan said the paint will fail unless you add plenty of the flex additive in mentions in the packet.

    I stand corrected, you can make them fit.

    How have you done that, are they on back to front and upside down? As from the instructions it looked like the angled ends went round the side not the front. I've had a set in my cellar for over a year.

    Its a vote for no chrome, I know some like loads of chrome on their cars but unfortunately not me. TBH I think it cheapens the look of the car. JMO

    Maybe its because I remember well the times when cars used to have a lot of proper chrome on them. Colour coded looks best IMO.
