Chevy Malibu Grille Issues
Your Chevy Malibu grille sure looks dashing. That won't always be the case, though. You may have to deal with grille issues at some point. The potential problems are described below.
The line it's just a scratch certainly doesn't apply to your Chevy Malibu grille. It's because scratches, regardless of the size, are never okay on your grille. All they do is bring down your grille's style points. Fortunately, scratches aren't permanent. In fact, there are more than a few ways to erase them. Polishing and sandpapering (the latter is mostly used for deep scratches) are some of these.
If the shirt that you're wearing right now can be victimized by stains, so can your Chevy Malibu grille. Yes, stains can indeed develop on your grille if you allow dirt, dust, and mud to sit on it for far too long. To prevent stains, wipe away the said impurities as soon as they land on your grille-don't let them to make a home out of it. All you need to get rid of them is plain dish soap and water, after all. So yeah, do that before the grime buildup turns into hard-to-remove stains.
It's too late for that, you say? The dirt, dust, and mud on your grille have already become stains? If that's the case, good old soap and water won't be enough to keep your grille clean-stains won't budge with just those. You'll need the help of specialized cleaning agents. You can use branded cleaning solutions that are sold in most automotive parts stores or home remedies such as distilled vinegar (mixed with warm water) to eliminate stains.
Dents are far worse than both scratches and stains since these tend to stand out quite easily. But before you start thinking of replacing your Chevy Malibu grille, know this: it can still be repaired. That's true; and just like scratches, there are several ways to get rid of dents. You'll need the help of tools such as plungers, dry ice, or hammers, though. It may take some work, but at least dents are repairable.
