How to Take Care of Your GMC Sierra 1500 Bug Shield
The fight of the lifetime always happens on the road. It's actually a cliche to call it a David versus Goliath match, but actually, it is. Meet the bug who is going head to head with a GMC Sierra 1500. The poor naïve little one is unwittingly embracing death by flying right into the massive pick-up truck. No amount of light, engine roar, exhaust notes, and honk can shoo the fly away from the path. And of course, you won't really spot the fly until it's too late. Splat! The poor bug is dead and sticking to your truck's nose in a split second. Thankfully, your truck's paint is spared from all those bug goo that scattered because of the GMC Sierra 1500 bug shield. We don't recommend keeping all those bug residues as your trophies, so here are a few tips on how to take care of your bug shield. Scroll down.
- Regularly wipe your bug shield to get rid of residues acquired during your drives.
You should be diligent in wiping residue and goo off your bug shield. It does not have to be done simultaneously with your regular car wash. In fact, you can wipe your bug shield as often as you want. This will keep your bug shield free from nasty marks always. You just have to wipe the residue off with a wet clean cloth. Don't forget to rinse the cloth after taking out all the goo.
- Rinse the bug shield with a steady stream of clean water.
Include the bug shield in your habitual car wash. When you are doing a car wash, the first thing you want to do is direct a steady stream of clean water on your truck's bug shield. This will eliminate any loose dirt and particles building up on its surface. The pressure derived from the hose should be able to thin out the unwanted layer.
- Scrub and brush the bug shield to fully clean it.
You can treat the bug shield just like any other exterior panel. Clean it using a sponge or wash mitt soaked in your car shampoo solution. A gentle but persistent scrub on the surface will do the trick.
