For those who powdercoated their bumpers :) Did they strip the chrome first? My local guy recommended that I strip the chrome first then PC them? TIA

Regardless of chrome or just mill scale the proper way to powder coat is to have it sand blasted /zinc primed and them powder coated. Some shops will "hang and shoot" parts. The parts are cleaned with a phosphate cleaner and then powder coated. this process looks good but not great, but will only last about a year. Sand blasting/zinc/powder will last for many years.
