Keeping Your Nissan Frontier Bumper in Showroom-Quality Finish
Maintaining your car bumper's good-working condition doesn't have to be tedious. All you need is the right working knowledge and the commitment to making your bumper look as good as new. Despite being one of the easy-to-maintain external components of your pickup, it still needs to be checked every now and then. To help you keep it in good shape, here are some quick guides on caring for your Nissan Frontier bumper:
- Fix scratches and dents at first sight.
Aside from being unsightly, a damaged bumper also offers reduced protection against front-end accidents. That is why you should regularly inspect your vehicle's bumper. Once you discover scratches and dents in the bumper, the first thing you should do is to try to fix them yourself. Doing so saves you tons of money that you can incur if you bring it to a car repair shop. However, if the damage is too big for you to repair, then you can opt to bring it to a nearby car body shop.
- Place a bumper protector on the edge of your pickup's bumper.
Being exposed to road dirt and debris, your car's bumper receives a great deal of stress while you're driving. One way to boost its strength and extend its service lifespan is by getting a bumper protector. This sticks on top of your bumper, giving it added protection against scratches and minor dents.
Bumper protectors usually come in a set of four—two strips for your front bumper and another two for the rear bumper. They are also offered in a range of colors and styles, so you can choose one that matches your vehicle's overall look.
- Use a paint protection film to defend the bumper's paint.
Aftermarket paint protection films (PPFs) give your vehicle superb scratch and stain resistance. This way, the paint on your car's bumper is kept intact. Some PPFs even come with a self-healing technology that makes minor scratches hardly visible. Another interesting fact is that PPFs can be applied on various components of your vehicle—bumpers, rocker panels, hoods, trunks, etc. So when you buy a pack for your bumper, you can also use the excess films for other parts of your car.
