Dodge Durango Nerf Bars
How to Keep Your Nerf Bars Clean and Functioning at Their Best
Your Dodge Durango needs stepping boards that serve as the ladder of the vehicle. These can provide your passengers with convenience when stepping in and out of your vehicle. They are toughly built and they can also add up to your truck's overall style. As a part of your ride's exterior, the Dodge Durango nerf bars are prone to damage because they are always in contact with dirt and other damaging element. Thus, you must know how to clean and restore them if necessary. Here are some tips:
- Eliminate rust from your nerf bars.
If you notice that rust is starting to build up on the metal or chrome surface of the nerf bar, get rid of it the soonest. You can deal with surface rust using sandpaper. Lightly sand the affected surface until rust is completely eliminated.
- Refurbish the look of your nerf bars by coating them again if necessary.
If you want to repaint your nerf bars, spray the coating carefully on one side then let it dry before proceeding to the next. Make sure that you have removed rust and small bumps on the surfaces for a smooth finish. Do the work on an area where you can avoid inhaling the spray paint. You can use safety mask as an additional protection.
To achieve best results in restoring the like-new appearance of your nerf bars, you also have to consider whether they are coated or uncoated or if the coating is aluminium or chrome. Aluminum coating should be restored using a polishing soap or compound that's specially designed for aluminium in the same way that chrome nerf bars deserve only a chrome polish. Clearcoated nerf bars can be treated like painted ones.
- Use only the appropriate cleaning tools for your nerf bars.
You should always clean your nerf bars using only the tools that are friendly on the bar's finish. By simply wiping the surfaces with a clean cloth and washing them with clean water, you can maintain the look and quality of your nerf bars. You can also polish them once they are completely dry. For your safety, avoid applying any cleaning substance that will make your nerf bars slippery.
