Question Stainless or chrome bumper

I am restoring a 1970 xke ots. Should I purchase stainless steel bumpers or straighten and chrome mine? Do the judges care? Your 2 cents is fine. thanks

Welcome to the forum k52,

I've moved your question from Jaguar Forums Feedback & Suggestion Centre to E-Type forum. The Feedback & Suggestion Centre is for posts about the forum and NOT FOR TECHNICAL QUESTIONS.

The judges will care only if they determine they are not chrome. Most if not all may be able to do this easily. Polished stainless is bright but never as proper chrome over brass/copper wash.
