    i got stock front bumpers and they arent shiney or anything, but they have like little specs of rust on it. they are tiny dots pin size all over the bumper, is there anything to get this off and then make it shiny.?
    i have heard someone calling it "making it chrome" is that a correct term?
    thanks for the info fellow CK5'ERS

    s.o.s. pads and water will probably do the trick. i have this problem on my harley pipes after i get get caught in the rain and this usually takes it off. give it a shot.

    If it's the stock chrome bumper, there are 2 good products for "restoring" the shine that I've used. One is made by Turtle Wax, it comes in a green aluminum can, I think it's simply called Chrome Polish. The other is made by Mother's. I used the Mag & Aluminum Polish, it works great. It can be a pain to get off. I suggest that you wipe it off with one cloth, then mist water on it and buff it to a shine with a soft terry cloth. Hope this helps.

    SOS pad to shine it up and remove the rust. Afterwards, hit it with a coat of wax or two. Probably take 10 minutes at the most and works like a charm.

    Use any chrome polish you like, but use a toothbrush for applying - works wonders! (Probably You should do that in some hidden place, people mostly laugh out loud seeing a guy working on his truck with a toothbrush [​IMG]).
