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.

How to Blend Clear Coat (Base / Clear) - Spot Repair
This is a 3 stage pearl white mazda that is having a spot repair performed
on the front bumper cover. It it being sprayed with BASF RM onyx waterborne
paint and RM DC5600 clear coat. The clear coat is blended and polished to
an undetectable transition. This repair will hold out well but ideally the
entire bumper cover should be painted the highest quality job. This was
repaired by blending the clear as the customer requested an economical
repair. The price differs from about $175 this way to about $500 to do the
entire bumper cover. The way a three stage paint works is the first part of
the paint is a solid color sprayed to cover the primer. Once that is done a
pearl coat is sprayed overtop to give it a deep pearl effect. It is all
topped with a clearcoat and the clearcoat is blended using a clearcoat
blender (UBR200). The blender is mixed into some activated clear coat also.
The entire job is polished at the end to remove the slight roughness caused
from the clear tapering out.

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
