Ok, that sounds like something they taught me in class while i wasn't listening.lol

well, thats how it looked when i got it and all i did was take a wire brush to it and it looked like new again. this winter i let the snow and dirt sit to long on the truck and the bumper got the worst of it. if the wire brush doesn't work this time then ill be calling up LMC.

Nah, moisture in the air, and also you might get condensation too at night built up inside. Just spray bomb it fast and safe a head ache, plus it'll looker nice than it already is!
