    Earl had...Rust bullet...on the back side of his front bumper. when he sent it to be rechromed, the Lady called him and asked what was on the back side? She said the chrome stripper wouldn't take it off. she now offers it as an option for coating the back side of her rechroming...:thumbs2:

    Can Rust Bullet be applied over existing paint or do you need to take it down to bare metal first?

    sounds like it would be a little hard to keep clean.
