Chevrolet Tahoe Chrome Bumper

Chevrolet Tahoe Chrome Bumper Issues

Your Chevrolet Tahoe chrome bumper most probably looks good (it's chrome, after all), but that may not always be the case. It's because there are several conditions that can affect your chrome bumper's appearance at some point. These conditions are discussed below:

Rust

As you know, rust is the arch-nemesis of any automobile, may it be a Chevrolet Tahoe or otherwise. Rust can spread throughout your Tahoe-even your Chevrolet Tahoe chrome bumper can fall victim to corrosion. You won't particularly like rust on your steel chrome bumper since it's located at the front of your ride, making it readily visible to everyone else. While the cancer-like corrosion is seemingly the end for your steel chrome bumper, don't lose hope just yet. Removing rust off of it can be a huge pain, but it's doable. Eliminating corrosion at its early stages will also make your job easier, that's why it's best to get to work as soon as signs of rust pop up.

Streaks and Stains

On top of rust, pesky streaks and stains can also plague your Chevrolet Tahoe chrome bumper. Because of its vulnerable location, your chrome bumper is exposed to elements such as dirt, dust, mud, and rainwater. These elements can settle and stick to your chrome bumper. And when they aren't wiped off from the chrome bumper right away, they can build up and become harder to remove over time. The usual water and dish soap won't work on such streaks and stains. Instead, you'll have to utilize a more specialized cleaning agent. Fortunately, the said specialized cleaning agent can come in the form of distilled vinegar, is an item that can most likely be found in your kitchen cupboard. Distilled vinegar mixed with warm water can get rid of most kinds of streaks and stains.

Dings and Scratches

Dings and scratches, while seemingly insignificant, will only bring down your Chevrolet Tahoe chrome bumper's style points. These blemishes can be caused by anything from minor vehicular collisions to contact with various sharp or hard materials. Lucky for you, dings and scratches can be removed. In fact, there is more than one way to do it. You can even paint over the dings and scratches after getting rid of them.

  • Maintenance Tips: Chevrolet Tahoe Chrome Bumper 27 February 2013

    Taking care of your Chevrolet Tahoe chrome bumper isn't hard work. It's definitely worth your while since a good-looking chrome bumper goes a long way in boosting your Tahoe's aesthetics. Below are the some of the things that you can do to keep your bumper in tip-top shape:


    Check for signs of rust from time to time.

    It's a well-known fact that your gorgeous Chevrolet Tahoe chrome bumper doesn't like rust. It's because rust can be likened to cancer-it will gradually suck the life away from your steel chrome bumper if you don't do something about it. By regularly checking for signs of corrosion, you can prevent rust from spreading throughout your chrome bumper. You'll be able to take action right away and make it easier for you to stamp it out completely.


    Clean your chrome bumper regularly.

    Cleaning your bumper regularly should prevent the buildup of impurities on your Chevrolet Tahoe chrome bumper. When dirt, dust, mud, and other stains are left untouched on your chrome bumper, they become more difficult to remove over time. You wouldn't want it to reach that point since the usual dish soap and water will most likely be ineffective against such blemishes. If ever it gets to that though, you can still get rid of the unwanted grime via more specialized cleaning agents. You don't necessarily have to spend on the said cleaning agents as even common household items such as distilled vinegar can be used to eliminate the hard-to-remove streaks and stains.


    Polish you chrome bumper periodically.

    On top of cleaning your Chevrolet Tahoe chrome bumper, you'd want to polish it as well. Doing so should keep your chrome bumper looking new even though it already has a few years on it. Before you start polishing though, make sure that your Chevrolet Tahoe chrome bumper has been cleaned first (and no signs of corrosion are present). Once you've done that, apply an appropriate amount of the chrome polishing solution on a clean rag or cloth then start wiping over the bumper. Continue wiping until you get the desired shine. Make sure to get all the areas.
