Default Dreaded Bumper Tape Marks

The other day I decided (while doing my tires) to try some of my tire shine (Black Magic tire wet) on the bumpers, and low and behold, what an improvement.

Granted you look close and you see a line, but the color is almost a dead on match! and even brought some of the slight metallic back.

I know it is temporary, but I have washed it twice and it is still holding up.

I try to avoid scrubbing the area (only the treated area) so I do not wear it away quicker, and to not goof up my soapy water.

I figure I will just add it to my tire application time.

Sure beats the heck out of that dull tape mess.

Strangely my computer will not let me post a pic, I will have to try to post one later. REBOOT TIME!!

Well I did a re- "search on this topic. And WOW, there's a butt load of info on it.

I think I will just do the treatment till the funds justify a repaint.

You can repaint them using Duplicolor FB106 Flexible Bumper Coating and Duplicolor CP199 Adhesion Promoter Primer....I did that on my wife's N/A and they still look beautiful after 2 years
