It cleaned up nice
This Maxima bumper had been mauled by countless bug strikes until the bugs had etched and marred the paint. Try as you might, once your paint get to that point you need something a little strong than soap and water, something to get that the stubborn bug jerky off the paint. Something like … sandpaper.
After sanding down and smoothing the bumper we repainted it and, as you can see in these two photos, it looks like new again. No more stubborn bug splatters, no more road rash and no more chips.
When it won’t fall off, you wash it off. But when you can’t wash it off … that’s when you paint it off.
