Warped Bumper Repair Saffron Walden

July 14, 2016

 

Most of the time if you manage to scuff your bumper the only type of damage you would normally get is a few scratches or a scuff over the impact area. In this case the customer caught her bumper on a low protruding post that latched it self on to the rear bumper corner wheel arch edge and warped and twisted the bumper plastic. Its one of the most hardest types of repairs to carry out for its not just a case of filling and spraying but also reshaping the warped part and getting the angles right for the next stage of preparation.

As you can see the far edge of the bumper has been badly pushed in and a large amount of plastic has been ripped off the edge of the panel.

This customer was selling her car and had been quoted over £300 for the repair, which we carried out for £120. This Audi was ready to put up for sale as soon as we were finished putting it back to showroom condition.

This customer was based in Saffron Walden in Essex near the Cambridge boarder. We had previously carried out work for another customer who lived in the same road so it was a recommendation that got us this job.

We arrived nice and early to carry out the work and within 2 hours the job was completed.

Bumper Scuff on Ford in Barnet North London

July 7, 2016

 

Another driver not watching where he was going, at a set of traffic lights caused this scuff on the rear of a Ford Focus based in Barnet North London. The resultant collision caused the paint to be scuffed and deep cracks created on the rear plastic bumper panel.

This customer had been quoted over £450 to repair the damage by a body shop and he would have lost his car for nearly a week. Instead he found our Mobile Paint Repair service on the Internet and sent us some photos of the damage for a quote. We charged him £140 to repair the damage, which is nearly a third of what a body shop would charge. He was happy to go ahead and a date was arranged for the repair.

The hardest part of this repair was reshaping the bumper where it had been warped. Getting the shape right at the preparation stage is key to a good finish so extra care and attention was taken to get the right angles when filling the panel with plastic padding.

The total time taken from arriving at the customer house in Barnet North London and finishing the repair on the Ford Focus took slightly over 2 hours in total.
