Bumper protection

Postby Mark Wilson » Wed Jun 26, 2019 9:00 pm

I've purchased new "high quality "chrome bumpers for my Traveller and I'm wanting to provide as much protection against corrosion as possible. The old front bumper I removed appears to be non-original, of a similar standard to the new one, with a dull silvery finish to the rear face and the corrosion which has occurred is mainly at the edges of bolt holes and the starter handle hole. (It's actually not that bad really, I'm now thinking I might have been over-fussy...)

Is it advisable to protect the rear face with waxoil or similar before fitting to the fibreglass valance, or perhaps to paint it with Hammerite or POR-15?

Most definitely! I applied dinitrol to both surfaces upon assembly including all nuts, bolts and washers.
In fact I have used the same process for all parts I have assembled.
Better safe that sorry!
