Default Got a 99 Suburban

I know its not Blazer-related buttoday we got a Suburban.Its a company vehicle, but I'll be driving it from time to time to keep the miles down on Jenn.The questions I have are:
1.What do I need to do to remove oxidation from the rims?
2. How do I get rid of acid rain damage on the windsheild?
3.Is there any way to restore faded chrome bumpers?
I don't usually ask questions about detailing, but I'm just a little stumped on these three.

for the wheels. Take it to the local truck stop and let them do their thing with this flour stuff and buffing wheel, you'll be amazed.

i have no clue about the windshield!

and with the chrome take oven clean spray them heavy let it set for about 10 mins wipe it off them take a good light compound (finesse it 2) and buff them. Be amazed again!

the oven cleaner has a chemical in it to eat the surface but leave the chrome onharmed.

For the windshield you might want to call a couple detail shops and see if any of them have any experience with a compound called cerium oxide. It is mostly used for scratches in glass, but can also be used as an abrasive cleaner for the window to rid it off tiny pits and super hard water stains, and should be able to help with the acid rain problem. You really don't want t use this stuff yourself it is really tough to work with and takes almost perfection to acheive the correct results.

For the wheels, I think we have a thread floating in here about wheel oxidation, or maybe it is headlights, but 10pins idea seems like a way to go to, I worked at a peterbilt body shop and the detail guys did some pretty amazing things with some really grody wheels.

The bumpers, I think eagle makes a polish/wadding that you can use to buff out most dulled or dirty metals. i've used it on my billet stuff and it brings them back to life. I've never heard of the oven cleaner thing, but sound interesting though. what is the chemical in it 10pin? Some sort fo acid? phosphoric or hydrochlor maybe?

If you want to see some pictures of it, check the thread in the off topic area, or you can see my photobucket sub-album http://s159.photobucket.com/albums/t...ldls/suburban/

*edit* Oh yeah, don't worry about the acid damage on the windsheild, I got it out with some white ammonia. I think it was only heavy water spots.
