I've a couple of tiny rust bubbles on the chrome(?) bumper inserts. Is there anything one can do to slow the progress of this corrosion?

Thanks
Piers

Was wondering if perhaps it is coming through from the inside?

If the rust was coming from behind, then surely the whole insert would be close to crumbling away? It wouldn't be a bad idea to Waxoyl the back, though, if it's easily removable.

Whatever you do make sure you do something as that bumper chrome is really expensive to replace as I had to do mine a few years ago, good luck with fighting it !
