We’re loving this recommendation from Chris, a Mustang aficionado who swears by one solution for restoring rare Fox-Body bumpers: Dominion Sure Seal Bumper Stripper.
“For anyone out there with a pre-85 bumper, you know the difficulty involved in finding a clean and bare original. Reproductions don’t exist either. Stripping 35 years of paint off a urethane bumper is almost impossible to do as there are too many tight areas. I found this stuff (in Canada) that works like a dream. Pulls paint right off the urethane without any difficulty and doesn’t damage the urethane. (Use at your own discretion)”
Check out Chris’ work on his Instagram page.
Bumper Stripper is a unique formulation that will not swell or attack most urethanes. The viscous consistency clings to the bumper without sagging. It is designed to totally remove all refinish material but not the original factory-baked finish. Repeated application of Bumper Stripper in an attempt to remove the OEM finish will result in swelling and distortion of the substrate. Test an inconspicuous area first, before proceeding with the whole bumper.
Note: Not to be used on Xenoy, PG, ABS, PVC, Fiberglass or SMC.
