Chevrolet C1500 Tail Light
How to Take Care of Your Chevrolet C1500 Tail Light
Your Chevy C1500 was one of the last two-wheel drive bow tie trucks produced before the Silverado line was introduced. The Silverado took a whole lot of inspiration from its predecessor. It had many similarities coming from the trademark Chevy design language. The quad head lights remain, the body lines are still strong and pronounced, and the stance is still perfect. But we have not forgotten about the Chevrolet C1500 tail light. The big rectangular amber assembly found on each corner of your truck's behind. It is a very functional design that allows the traffic behind to easily spot you. But in order for that to work, you should know how to take care of your tail light. Here are some maintenance tips that you might want to consider:
- Rinse your tail light with clean water.
Clean water from your pipes is an essential component in rinsing the external panels and parts of your truck. The freely-moving water washes away loose dirt from the surface. If there is only a light layer of dust, you can just make do with water and occasional light dabs using a clean cloth.
- Scrub the tail light lens using a sponge or wash mitt.
Just like how you would treat the other panels of your truck, your tail light lens also deserves a scrub. Make sure that your lens has already been rinsed with water before you proceed. When it is ready for scrubbing, soak a sponge or wash mitt in a car shampoo. Wring out the excess solution before gently scrubbing the lens. Be careful not to apply too much pressure because it can scratch the lens. Your tail light can become hazy if you continually scratch it with heavy scrubbing.
- Brush the crevices to get rid of stubborn dirt.
There will be times that the sponge or wash mitt won't be enough to get rid of the dirt. In these cases, you should take the extra step of using a brush. The fine bristles of the soft brush will be able to hook out the dirt from those areas. Be firm yet gentle when using the brush so you don't scratch the lens.
