I'm going to be starting another streetrod project,looking at the old bumpers,is there a proper way of painting over the old chrome or do they have to be stripped to bare metal? :)

you can paint over the chrome if you scuff it very well, but most go get the chrome stripped because of visable pits in the chrome that show up in the paint.

If the chrome is cracked, peeling, puckered in blisters, you should be able to get the bumpers sandblasted right down to bare iron. Then prepare them as anything else for paint, and away you go.
I love technology.
