Washing the truck yesterday (the wife thinks I am crazy as it was 30 degrees outside...) but anyways, I notice some RUST
spots on the inside edge of the front bumper. The steel on the bumper "returns" into the wheel well for about 1/2". On that 1/2" lip, it looks like some gravel may have chipped a peice of the chrome from the finish and it has started to rust. Two very small chips around 1/16" dia each. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!



I know how to touch up the body, but what do you do about chrome? I think that after I get it fixed (whatever that will take), I will look for something to protect it as it is prone to have gravel/road debris thrown around in that area. Suggestions?Edited by: BKG-22

No real way to touch up chrome ....


I'd wait awhile and when the "inside" of the bumper gets good and "rusty brown" bring it in for replacement under rust through warranty ....


If you don't want the rust to reoccur paint the inside of the bumper with a rust inhibitor ....


Been there done it ....
