Three Tips to Keep Your Nissan Pathfinder Bumper Cover Clean and Polished
Your Nissan Pathfinder bumper cover is toughly made to serve as a protection for your bumper and for other exterior parts as well.

Let your bumper cover dry completely afterwards.
- Use a sandpaper for scrubbing the surface of your bumper cover.
Make use of a sandpaper to smoothen out any rough or bumpy spots on your bumper cover. You can also use it for visible cracks and tears on the surface. You must repeat scrubbing until the surface looks polished. However, be careful not to damage the other painted areas while doing this procedure. It is recommended to attach tape or cloth on the surrounding areas for this procedure.
