Nope, it'll look worse with the "so called" chrome paint. Trust me, you might as well be spraying any other silver color.

If I had an Elky, I would try to find/fab a roll pan & just do away with the bumper all together.

that would be cool but it kinda would look funky with just the front bumper being chrome. unless i did the roll pan and then painted the front bumper black, but kinda like the chrome bumpers.

The Paddock.... whoops.

Most places like OPGI or Year One SHOULD have some generic bumper bolts. Otherwise, IDK......

Are you talking about the ones that you can see on the outside of the bumper? They're pretty much just carriage bolts right? Any hardware store would carry them.

77malibu77 not sure if you would even see this post, but do you have any updated photos of your ride after the bumper work? Just curious.
