Default Chrome Grille cleaning

Hi Everyone. I have owned my truck now for 8 months and cleaned is countless times. I was wondering if anyone else has noticed water spots forming on the chrome grille horizontal bars. It appears dodge did not make the bars the same all the way around. on the top portion the chrome is smooth on the bottom the chrome bar has a groove in it. The problem is that up can not clean the area on the bottom portion good enough and the dirt and water spots are now reflecting on the next bar down and it looks dirty, I think Dodge should make the finish the same all the way around and that would clear up the problem. What do you think?

is there some kind of detailing brush that would fit between those and clean them? i think that unless you can dry them off underneath after washing your always going to have those spots unfortunitly. hopefully someone else with this grill will chime in and offer an opinion . good luck

I used chrome polish to get them off the first time and haven't had them since. I take a leaf blower when I'm done washing the truck and do the grill this way there is no water left to drip out after I hand dry it. Good Luck

I give my wife a microfiber and she uses her tiny little fingers to dry it. I use Surf City Garage Hot Rod Detailer on it and the wheels, keeps the water spots off between washes.
