Custom-Coating Specialties has a new XXX-Chrome Plating-process that allows for the coating of fiberglass-bumpers and most different substrates. It is called chemical-metallization. The process consists of putting a base layer on a section to achieve a truly soft surface. Then a thin-layer of metal is applied utilizing a chemical-reaction instead of the normal-electrical process. The final step is to keep a layer of armor at top. The last process looks similar to the chrome. black steel front bumper
