Car Damage Repair (Part 1)
Comments REQUIRE APPROVAL. THINK before posting.
NOTE: I am NOT a Car Care Expert, nor claim to be.
NOTE: This is =NOT= a Tutorial on how to repair a vehicle. It is a progress series.
The Epic Tale, of fixing a car, after some dunce taxi driver hits it.
Fortunately, the bumper, PHYSICALLY, is 100% undamaged! Cosmetically, it was a total mess.
Before I started this video, I got half the "Darlington Stripes" off if it, and in this segment, I remove the rest of them. Some scratches remain, and there's some chipped off paint. Tocuh-up painting is in the next part.
BEFORE SOMEONE SAYS IT:
No, I do NOT have the time, or money, to go though the hassles of insurace companies, getting it appraised, quoted, and replacing the bumper. The damage is fairly neglegable, and when it's done, it'll not be perfect, but will look like other parts of the car.
ALSO: Once all is done, the receipts for the materials will be sent to the cab company who was responsible. Fortunately, it's not going to be a major nightmare.
Smart As Paint How to repair a scratched
This video will show most of the processes I use in a 'SMART' (Small to Medium Area Repair Techniques) repair. Using the newly introduced water based paint systems. This one shows a bumper, but it is a similar process anywhere on the car. You will however, find repairing horizontal surfaces i.e. roof, boot and bonnet can be more difficult to 'fade out' .If there is an aspect I have left out, or I have not made clear in the time available, drop us a line and I will try to help. If you are in the Brighton area of the UK, I may be able to do it for you at a very reasonable rate.
Repairing and retexturing a Ford Explorer bumper cover
This video demonstrates, from start to finish, how to repair a textured plastic bumper cover using a hot air plastic welder. After the plastic welding is complete, the dents and low spots in the bumper are filled with epoxy filler which is then sanded down to match the original contour. The bumper cover is then retextured with MicroTex texture material from Urethane Supply Company. Finally, the bumper cover is painted with Bumper and Cladding Coat so that it matches the original color.

How to Repair a Cracked Bumper
Visit http://www.refinishnetwork.com for more auto body repair information. 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.

This is a spot repair (blow in) on the front of a dodge bumper. This is a metallic blue being blended and partially cleared. The tape on the edges is known in the auto body repair trade as a back mask where the clear is blended on the roll of an edge. This is in no way a top quality repair, it is an economical repair suited best for used car lots and lease return vehicle. I must say they do still hold up pretty well when done properly. The bumper was polished with a coarse compound for the blender to adhere while the rest of the area that was cleared got sanded with 3000 grit paper, except the primer was 600.
This was a scratch originally that was feathered out and primed. For more information check out our website at www.refinishnetwork.com
