Bumper Scuff Repair St Albans Hertfordshire 12/12/13
This little knock on the rear panel was caused by the driver slightly touching the wall of his house while trying to park on his driveway. The damage is only over a small area but some of the plastic has been scuffed out of the component by the impact. The area had to be filled with some specialist plastic padding filler to even out the surface area of the bumper.
The hardest part of this job was the colour for if any debris fell onto the paintwork while we were spraying then we would have had to start again, for the imperfection would stand out like a saw thumb on a white background. Luckily everything went to plan.
