2015 Summit lower rocker chrome scratching

Is anybidy else's lower side rocket chrome strip scratching from getting in and out of the car? I am assuming it is scratching while being dirty and rubbed up against. Had anyone successfully buffed the trim piece or replaced it? I will repair the area and then have a detailer install 3M clear tape on the chrome.

I'm only 5'10" so I have to use the easy entry/exit to minimize that. Once I programmed myself to avoid it that helped too. Funny how little crap like this rubs in one's craw.

Re: 2015 Summit lower rocker chrome scratching

This is a good question. I have a small rub mark on mine and wondered the same how to remove it. Its so easy to mark up in such a vulnerable area. I bet you'd have to replace the whole lower rocker fascia.

Yes give it time and you will have plenty more of them, my summit is 3 years old, it just happens like all the scuffs on the lower door panel as you get out

I'd think that any good brand of chrome polish would take care of that.

Re: 2015 Summit lower rocker chrome scratching

I'm not replacing anything. Hopefully, the chrome strip is metal and not plastic which would allow me to use some very fine sandpaper (i.e. 600 grit or more) to rub them out.

If u use any abrasive material, IMHO, it should b 0000 steel wool and nothing more abrasive.
