Can I plasti-dip my chrome bumpers?

Hating the chrome on my front and rear bumpers on my 02. Can I plasti-dip chrome? If so what is the process like prep, how many coat and how do I mask it? Thanks.

why plasti dip? have you considered paint or like truck bed liner? for dip you need to clean the area and taping off helps but overspray at least comes off.
