The cheap roll/rattle can liner will flake off in less than 6 mos. If you scuff it good and have it done Rhino/Linex, It will stay. There's a Rhino shop here in Ludington that does them $50.00 per bumper.

Yes it can be done. I suggest taking 180 grit sand paper to scuff it up though. You need to scuff the crap out of the chrome so it is rough so you get good adhersion.

There is obviously more than one way to do it, but if there are chips or the chrome finish is flaking off you will need to get it totally removed by blasting or take it to a professional to get it properly removed. If the chrome is in good shape and you just want to paint it or whatever, you can use a product by POR-15 that can be sprayed onto the chrome to give the paint a proper surface to adhere to. Sandblasting or using, I think it's aluminum oxide of about 120 grit should do the trick as well. If you blast it, it will help prevent warping too.
