Scuffs and Scratches
On exterior paintwork we repair bumper scuffs, bumper scratches, split bumpers, mirror scuffs, key scratches, vandal scratches and stone (paint) chips as well as paint restoration and refinishing.
These can be especially unsightly on darker coloured vehicles and if allowed to remain untreated, may lead to rust forming. Using our computerised mixing system the paint is matched using the manufacturers paint code. As a guide if the damaged area is around the size of an A4 piece of paper and splits are less than 20cm (8”) long then a repair can be completed. If there are 3 or more such areas of damage on the same bumper we would recommend a Body shop repair.
Textured bumper scuffs
Exterior non-colour coded trims, such as side mouldings and textured bumpers, can be repaired using modern repair methods. Where as in the past they would have had to be thrown away and replaced by new ones.
Colour coded bumper scuffs
Exterior trims, mirror casings, bumpers and motorcycle fairings that are scuffed or scratched, can now be repaired and blended into the original paintwork with no visible signs of a repair. Textured colour coded items, such as many Renault bumper inserts can now be repaired using our specialised products.
Split or cracked bumpers
Cracks or splits in plastic bumpers and mirror housings on most cars can be repaired by plastic welding rather than needing to be thrown away.
