Got rear-ended two weeks ago and my Jeep is headed to the body shop next week for a new rear bumper cover. Luckily she cut the wheel at the last second and didnt touch my exhaust or back-up sensor strip, although she did take out one rear fog
I am contemplating blacking out the side and rear chrome strips, and if I did so I would want to try and paint match it as opposed to vinyl. I am not 100% what I want to do yet. So my question is can these rear chrome strips and backup sensors be removed when the bumper is still on?? Or is it necessary to take the bumper off to remove them and paint? Because if the bumper has to come off, then I might as well have them do it now while it is all apart.
Anyone know for sure? Also can the chrome strip be sanded and painted?
