Repair Your Finish with Bumper Painting
Nothing brings the exterior of a car, or van down faster than an unsightly bumper scratch or scrape. While most people repair major damages like a dented panel or shattered windshield right away, bumper scratches tend to get overlooked. After all, it's not preventing the car from driving safely, and it's always something that can get repaired later.
However, putting plastic bumper repair or bumper painting off simply doesn't make sense – not if you want to enjoy your vehicle for the luxury item that it is. Bumper repairs are affordably priced starting from £70, and you can get your car back on the road in less than an hour. This means that you can go from damaged to perfection in less time (and money) than it takes to get your teeth cleaned.
Retain your Car Value with Bumper Repairs
Of course, plastic bumper repair is also about keeping the value of your car as high as possible. If you put your necessary repairs off with the assumption that you can always get the repair when you're ready to trade-in or sell the vehicle, you're doing yourself a disservice. Why not get the bumper repairs done now? The cost will be the same today as it will a year down the road, and this way, you actually get to enjoy having a perfect finish.
Most of us take the time and spend the money to do the little things that make all the difference in owning a car: pinstriping, window tinting, car detailing, and even weekly car washes. Plastic bumper repair offers the same perks associated with these upgrades and maintenance issues, but with the added benefit of restoring your car's value for future transactions.
This is a bumper repair on a Chrysler 300 that has a split in the rear bumper cover. Shown here is Kent Repair Epoxy adhesive, Evercoat Polyflex and BASF urethane primer. To start the bumper is washed to inspect for further damages. There is a small tear that may not be visible on the video but there is a clear hole in the cover. The hole is first tapered out on both sides and reinforced on the back and front with epoxy. The epoxy is sanded fairly straight with a DA sander but final blocked with flexible polyester putty. You can simply finish in epoxy and it would make for a better job, however it sands much tougher.
