Chrome wrapping the lower bumper grille features

Hey has anyone out there done a chrome wrap or plating job on their lower bumper features (the ones next to the fog lamps)??

I'd like to get mine done and was hoping someone had tried before me!

you're talking about the 2 little fin like pieces right?

i think it would look terrible, it's also made of plastic so I dont know how that can be chromed and stay chromed.

if you really want to do it, try some chrome vinyl and see what it looks like, that way it's reversible.

Yes, the two fin pieces.

You can chrome plate plastic, you know. A long as it's not soft like polypropolene.

I was also looking to wrap, as I mentioned in the first instance.

Ta.
