Oh Lawdy, not that pic again..

I painted my grille, and got a few others to follow me. I had a gutter guard very similar to pats down below as I found a bird down there by the rad once and wanted some protection, but eventually got rid of it for the time being.

I still haven't found a pattern I truely like, and I want a matching scheme top and bottom.

Default I have the answer

What you want is one of two different products....ChromeFX or MirraChrome. Both are made by ALSA Corporation in CA. ChromeFX is more expensive and requires special tools. MirraChrome DOESN'T REQUIRE SPECIAL TOOLS and is quite reasonable. These guys are masters of special paints and coatings.... www.alsacorp.com

here is an example

and then you can also do the lower part of the bumper too



Pat that is sooooooRICE, sorry but it is. I would have painted or had nickel strike and chromed.

??????He ask for options for chroming out ....Aluminum guttering is cheap rice that doesnt last. A stone will fubar it and the anodizing wont last long. If your going to take the time and effort to do something, do it with quality products that will last.

I had the same thing down there Venom, shaped a little more (similar to a GP grill). It'* the only solution that works well, as you'll need to shape it 3 dimensionally, and most of the heavier stuff wont be easy over that span. The stuff on the back of say a Ferrari is thinner, albeit not up front either.

Mine stayed silver for a whole year before it went away for body work. My hood had more damage then it did after a year. It got plenty of work in winter here.
