Three years ago I had all the bumper pieces on my 70 'B (front, 2 piece
and 4 over-riders) rechromed for $350 at a local rechromer. The front
over-rider induced dents removed, which they included in the price. They
did an outstanding job and there is not visible indication that the front
bumper was repaired (other than the hammer marks on the backside where they
removed the dents). Chrome work is very bright and deep. In hindsight, I
should of brought all the chrome pieces on the car to him to do as I was
doing a total resto at the time.

The owner's name is Henry Guillen. Henry just bought out the old owner back
then and I believe this is still the name of the shop. Haven't been back
since, so I can't vouch for them recently, but it's worth a call.
