  Ha! One trick that I learned when I worked in a body shop was to take a
dented or scratched bumper, fill in the dent with body puddy and then cover
the damage with a larg ebumper sticker! Lots cheaper than a new or
rechromed bumper! I wonder how many bumper stickers you've removed only to
find a damaged bumper underneath.
