    Shot-blast & epoxy prime will work well, but make sure it is "old-school" shot and not something like soda or walnut shells as you need it to really key the surface.

    i've sanded chrome bumpers with 80 grit da discs. eats the discs but does get the job done. then best to use self etching primer as a next step.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    If it's chrome like on the ****ty repro bumpers I bought, leave it outside for an hour in the British weather and it'll fetch it right off and replace it with a lovely rusty crust! LOL!

    But what is wrapping? Sounds like it might be useful to me but no idea what it is.
    Greatest discombobulations to all my readers.

    there's that plastic dipping/coating/spraying too, don't know who does it but it's an option. again it can be peeled off later if required.
