Smart Repair on a Ferrari

May 22, 2016

We carry out Smart Repairs on all types of vehicles but this has to be my favourite. It’s a bumper scuff low down on the front end of a Ferrari F149 California. This customer lived in North West London and scuffed his car on a high kerb around the corner from his house. He had originally taken it to Ferrari for an estimate and was shocked to find out that the repair was over £850. We were recommended to him by one of his close friends who we had carried out work for previously.

The damage was not as bad as Ferrari had made out, you didn’t need to replace the bumper, which Ferrari had advised, it was just a simple scuff repair like those we carry out on a day to day basis on every other car. Luckily the customer had adequate cover for it had been raining and was pretty windy most of the day.

The job took us just under 2 hours and just required a small amount of finishing filler for some of the deeper bumper scratches.

Bumper Paint Repair Stevenage

May 14, 2016

Some car colours can be harder to spray than others, yellow and gold are possible the hardest to match and the hardest to blend in. Even a brand new yellow or gold car that has been sprayed at the manufacturing plant can look slightly different from panel to panel so just imagine how hard it is for a mobile Smart Repair service to try and blend the paint in on the same panel.

This customer in Stevenage had scuffed the car while getting it valeted. The damage couldn’t be in a more difficult place, right on the edge of the bumper joining the rear wing/wheel arch. What made the position of the damage so difficult is that there is virtually no room for us to blend the paint in on the top edge of the bumper. So we had to finish the paint and spray right up to the panel’s edge. We didn’t want to spray the paint and blend over the rear wing so the colour match had to be near enough perfect to keep the repairable are small and on the same panel.

The colour match couldn’t be more perfect so spraying the bumper corner was all that was required. The finish of the bumper scuff repair was back to showroom condition and looked like it never happened in the first place. The job took just under two hours to complete.
