Not sure if you are looking at repops or shops specializing in inventoried chrome bumpers. There is at least one major company located out of California that specializes in re-chromed bumpers that they sell from stock (Their work is ok for a driver, but wouldn't want it on my hot rod or show car).

When buying repopped stuff, it is usually off-shore, and the workmanship just isn't up to standards. Often the stuff just doesn't fit.

If you truly want chrome, have yours evaluated by a good chrome shop. many times they can repair yours and make them better than new. If yours aren't in good enough shape,. shop for a good core that you can have re-chromed by a quality shop. A lot of quality shops will have resources for these cores.
