I just thought I'd drop this here. Came across this on another thread. The painted bumper on this FC looks good. I don't think paint would hold up as well to backing over campground pedestals, though.

I was going to try a vinyl “Chrome wrap”. I have seen a complete car done that looked pretty good so I might give it a try.

If you aren't prepared to prep that bumper to an absolute smooth finish and virtually no imperfections you won't be happy. A speck of dust almost shows up under a wrap. But if it looks pretty bad as it is now, it may look better no matter what.
