Look it up. There are a ton of debadging DIY on here. Look for one made by the underlord. As for the paint no is should be fine is you do it right

I know there are alot of threads on here about this... But from what I can remember, rough up the crome alot and clean thoroughly. Then I would recommend plastidip ( I believe that's what it is called) then spray away

Last chrome bumpers I did were on my buddies old 04 CR Cummins. I used 80 grit sandpaper first to rough them up, then self etching primer, then regular primer, then basecoat and clear coat. All PPG products and used an HVLP gun. He backed into some shit and it dented the hell out of the bumper but didnt crack or scuff the paint at all. Thats my recommendations. Also I bought both my primer black bumpers from LMC for $250 for the pair, so thats also an option.

I took alcohol to the bumper first after washing it to clean any oil/debris off, then roughed up my chrome with some 80# (iirc) on a grinding wheel prior to priming (only applied one thick coat) , then went over with heavy coats of spray on bedliner i purchased from lowes. Didnt have a problem with flaking or anything up until the day i gave that old crusty bumper away.
