The bumpers on my 122 Wagon project are not very good. The bumpers aren't that straight to begin with, and the chrome is sad. It will cost me too much to straighten and chrome them right now, so I am looking for a short term solution. Something cheap, but reasonably durable.

Any suggestions?

FYI - Long term, I will replace/fix the chrome.

Remove them. It adds something like 4.7 HP...Seriously.

I painted both on a Malibu after narrowing them to hug the body. When they were cut in half and could fit in a blast cabinet, I peckered up the chrome via blasting and then put on House of Kolor "Adhereto". This very thin primer makes anything stick to anything. Repainted them body color.
