Default FC Front Bumper - Chrome

I need a like-new chrome front bumper for an FC Wanderlodge. I am only able to get a new bumper for an All American or TC2000 in black, but would prefer a chrome one if anyone has an extra they would be willing to sell! Thank you!

Yes, I know it is a long shot, but I figured I might as well ask. My bumper looks great from 3 feet away, and its downhill from there.

BB has made a chrome bumper for the TC2000; I saw one in the wild on a blue TC 2000 church bus with coach seats and basement air. Almost tried to chase it down so I could measure.

Look at the one on the link below, it is black.

I do have one BB part number written down somewhere- there are about 10+ different part numbers that will all work evidentially, but the only TC 2000 number has yielded me any good results. I will find it.

Re-chrome cost me around $850 a few years back. It's held up pretty well. If yours does not have any heavy pitted rust, might be worth considering. The shop that I used happens to be near the Harrisburg Airport

I've had some chrome plating done by these people and they are not too far from you. The work was stunning, but so was the price!

Local criminal took a grand from me for a front bumper, one year warranty, one year and a day started peeling, lousy Russian emigrant with an attitude rot in H$LL. Next attempt, chrome powder coat, same deal, one year falling off. Like the fire truck unit on my 35rb.

If it looks good at three feet a buffing pad and some mothers metal polish should make it look good at three inches...
