Plastic bumpers don’t always need to be replaced when damage occurs. Instead, they can be saved with innovative plastic reconditioning techniques. We often repair bumper covers for about half the cost of buying, painting, and installing a new part. In situations where your plastic bumper is beyond repair, we can replace it with either factory or aftermarket parts as your budget allows. There are special procedures and precautions used when painting plastic to ensure a long-lasting quality finish. We make sure your job is done right the first time. Because bumper covers are generally made of plastic, heat and epoxy can be used to reshape and repair them. Once repaired, imperfections in the finish are sanded down.
If needed, a light application of flexible polyester filler designed for plastic bumpers for added pliability is applied. Then, multiple layers of primer and two different grits of wet/dry sandpaper are used until the desired uniformity on the surface has been obtained. Finally, a two stage paint process is applied, with a base coat of color and a clear coat of glossy polyurethane to protect the paint.
Rockville Central Auto Body uses only the highest quality paints and sealants available on the market to keep your car looking like new, and we guarantee all paint work for as long as you own your vehicle.
