How To Remove Chrome From A Bumper

Chrome is one of those things that many people just assume will never go away. After all, it looks amazing on most things and it’s really hard to remove without damaging the surface. Wrong. Chrome can be removed easily with the right tools and a bit of elbow grease. In this blog post, we will show you how to remove chrome from bumpers and other surfaces easily. ###

What You’ll Need

If you’re looking for a way to remove Chrome from your bumper, there are a few things that you’ll need. Firstly, you’ll need a flat head screwdriver. Secondly, you’ll need some scrap paper or cardboard. Lastly, you’ll need GooGone – the best hard-surface cleaner available!

To remove Chrome from your bumper, start by peeling off the adhesive backing with your screwdriver. Make sure to get rid of all the extra adhesive before proceeding. Once the adhesive is removed, place the Chrome on your cardboard or paper and use your screwdriver to gently score the top of the Chrome with several deep lines. Be careful not to pierce through the Chromes layer!

Next, pour a small amount of GooGone into one hand and spread it evenly over the scored area on top of Chromes. Use your other hand to gently rub over the entire area until no more globs of GooGone are visible. Wipe off any excess GooGone with a cloth or paper towel. If necessary, repeat these steps until all traces of Chrome have been removed from your bumper!
