    Anywhere in OK do this? Need a chrome 66' bronco bumper straightened, it's bent on both ends from the mounting bolts outward. Chrome is in fantastic condition, just bent.

    Any shop that has a large press should be able to do it. That is if it isn't to bent up.

    Yeah... you'll be lucky if the chrome stays on when straightening. Metal stretches, plating not so much. At least not usually at the same rate.

    Hope it does. :drunk2:

    I had a bumper that got rolled up on the end fixed by a local shop. They had what they called a pogo stick. Reminded me of one of those lumber jack tools with a movable hook on one end to roll logs over. Worked with the same principle. It did a good job.

    Getting the chrome to stay on is the tricky part
