Amazing how fuzzy my memory is on this, maybe I should go out to the garage and take the bumper off to relearn. :)

As I recall, the bolt goes through a stamped metal piece. Between the metal piece and the bumper arm you can have the front license plate holder (the stamped piece is set so a it can allow that to protrude). Then the bumper arm. Under the arm is the fender. Between the fender and the frame is a thick piece of metal that is basically an oversized washer. One the inside of the frame is a lock washer and nut.

For '34 there is a pressed steel cap that is a friction fit over the stamped metal piece but for '33 there is no cover. I think that "chrome cover" you mention is not authentic for '33. And even for '34 it most likely would have been painted black instead of plated.
