Default bumper rust emerging

Washington does not use salt on their roads in the winter, but there are some visible cracks in the first picture. This is obviously on the Explorer...

thats comming thru from underneath from what I can tell, for asthetics you could buff it out with Meguires cleaner wax on the painted stuff and a metal polish on the chrome. Baking soda probably would work on both iirc. Actually getting rid of it is a whole nother ball game.

I'd sand it down then paint over it with a rust inhibitor like STAUN'* or POR-15.
