Ok so I ordered the Olympic 4x4 Rock bumper for my 2011 JKU. Just received it today and the box was beat like the box that Jim Carry had in Ace Ventura. Both ends were taped up a ton and I could hear the nuts and bolts loose inside. So I open the box and the bumper is not wrapped up in anything and has a few minor, minor scratches in the powder coating. It is missing a few nuts/bolts but everything else is there. I call the company I bought it from to complain and they file a damaged box claim through FedEx, then the guy comes back and states he has "issued me a full refund and to just dispose of the bumper safely". I was taken back but asked him to repeat himself to which he said "yes sir just dispose of the bumper safely, we do not have anymore of these bumpers in stock so you will get a full refund in 2-7 days". I simply wanted to complain and leave it at that but this rep was much more helpful
I just can not bring my self to "safely dispose" of the bumper because of a couple scratches that it will surely get over time anyway.
My question is what can I do to the bumper to insure that the scratches will not rust. I plan on putting some primer and paint on it but is that all I need, what would you use?
