[oletrucks] chipped chrome

I finally found some original rear bumper brackets for my 49 3100, and
today put on my rear bumper (still no bed). Unfortunately, when I
tightened up the bumper bolts, the chrome on my bumper cracked and
peeled around the outside bolt.
This bumper has been rechromed, although I had it done almost 2 years
ago when I first got the truck. Even though I just took it out of the
bag, I doubt I can return it (although I will try). This leads to my

    Is there anything that can be put on the bumper where the chrome
peeled (about the size of a quarter) that will protect the metal
underneath, or should I start the search for a new bumper and/or chrome
guy? The spot doesn't look that bad, so if there is something that can
be done without major expense, I'm all for it.
Thanks for any help.
