Our bumpers were borderline unsalvageable—their only saving grace is that they weren’t bent. Jeppesen pulled out every trick he knew, using triple-X steel wool with Mothers Billet Metal Polish and lots of elbow grease. While we fell short of restoring the bumpers to a new condition, they now look good enough to be seen in public. At least the front bumper was in better shape than the rear. Now they look like well-cared-for 44-year-old bumpers that fit car’s vibe.
