The H model has the bumper, not the I.......but the steel piece you're
talking about is not easy to make nice, once rusted. Should be
rechromed, really, but I have never seen it done so I don't know how it
would look. Sometimes replating doesn't work well - for instance on your
machine the selector panel chrome pieces - they have a fine pattern that
will not stand any amount of grinding/polishing. 
  Best is to find a nice original part. I have one, but to ship it...it
is also a beast to reassemble.
