Question How to clean dull and water marked bumper!

Hello all! Purchased my Dodge Ram last Weds. Its a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7l V8. This is also my first vehicle. It was taken care of. Whoever had it put a 4 grand lift kit on it from fabtech. Had the under body coated with some rubber material. Only things it had wrong with it was it needed new ball joints and tie rods and the power steering was leaking a bit and it needed new brake pads. But it needs to be cleaned up. The headlights have yellowed over the years which i bought the 3M Headlight restoration kit for that. But what could I do about the bumper? I am assuming its chrome? Its a little dull and looks like it has water spots on it.

The chrome part of the bumper and grille you can use a chrome polish like Mothers brand...

The painted part of the bumper would get treated like the rest of the truck with some wax...

And the black plastic parts you can use some black plastic restorer
http://www.mothers.com/02_products/06112.html

My favorite for the black plastics is Maxima SC-1 spray detailer used in the powersports industry...it works very well...there are also similar sprays from other companies that you could search online...

I am sure there are some here that can help, however give them a chance.

There is only 25 minutes between your initial post and the above. By my time (Eastern) the first post was made at 12:01 AM.
