    Default Bumper Scrapes

    Some lovely person has scraped my rear bumper in the works car park.

    Does anyone know the best way sort out the scrapes and paint transfer? Or anyone that can help sort it in the south wales area?

    Thanks

    Have they broken the surface?

    Possibly a wet sand with 2000 grit, or a dry cut with Meg's Swirl-X will remove them then a finer cut polish such as Zymol cleaner wax.

    FRF in swansea can do it for £330, drop and split the bumper, spray it and sort me out with a courtesy car.

    Not I think especially when i'm not paying for it

    £330 in FRF vauxhall swansea. they are keeping the car for 3/4 days.

    the price is with a courtesy car, removal of bumper and all the stuff that goes with it aswell.

    I'm not paying for it anyway, 3 accident repair centres in swansea have given virtually the same price.

    Chips away have given me a price but apparently the paint they use can be taken off with practically any abrasive polish. Has any heard of this?

    p.s I just want the car back the way it was. Is it unreasonable to want to give it to Vauxhall even if it is more expensive?

    I've just had a quote to do a localised spray repair to my bumper following some clown reversing into me. £200 + vat. Bumper off, rub down damaged area, respray and blend into existing paintwork, then into the oven to cure the paint.

    With a plastic bumper the paint needs to have an elasticiser adding to allow for expansion and contraction so that he paint doesn't crack in the future. Chances are chips away and the other smart repairers will just use standard paint. Will look ok for 6 months or so, then stand out like a sore thumb.
