    14 Silverado Work Truck Bumpers?

    Doing a detail on a black 14 Silverado which is a Work Truck model.
    Front grille is all blacked out plastic. Lower section of front bumper
    is metal with a dull black finish. Looking for something that would
    clean ut well and be able to have some sealing ability.
    Any thoughts?
    Thanks

    You could use car wash soap in conjunction with a good APC to clean it. A good brush will help a lot with the grill.

    Then take a look at SONAX Polymer Net Shield, it seems to work on just about anything but rubber.

    Please let us know how it works out. Here's my article on this product, it's actually a very versatile product with a cult-like following.


    SONAX Polymer Net Shield - Closest thing to a coating without being a coating


    And "yes" I have tried it on tires and "no" it didn't work. BUT - the stuff works on just about everything else.
