Strange damage to bumber

Post by Cdny » Fri Apr 12, 2019 10:58 am

Not used my car since the weekend woke up to find this damage.

Not sure how this could have happend car is left on the drive and definitely wasn't there on the weekend.

Anyway anyone know of any possible way to repair this? Or at least make it look better.

Thanks

Have you got children with bikes?
I’d just gently rub it down and treat with bumper black.

As Steve has mentioned it looks like somebody has gone by and scuffed it. You will have to get rid of the damages by using some fine “Wet & Dry” Paper to get it smooth and then comes the coloring. Whether this is Black or just a Bumper Cleaner like “Mother’s Back to Black” which is Clear or “Car Plan” Black Trim Wax needs experimenting with - Dave 😉

I used Chipsaway before. Not cheap but they did a perfect job.

The blue paint looks like it’s been resprayed at some time, it’s got that orange peel look?

I've bought a black filler suitable for bumpers but I haven't used it yet.

That's a reflection from the pram and an orange bricked house opposite.

Thanks for all your input I'll update you once I get a chance to do it

No, sorry but it’s a bad spray job at some point.

I agree, looks like a lot of orange peel.

That is a bad spray job to cover minor damage, I wonder if the OP did not notice the damage to the plastic before and has only just noticed it.
When you buy a used car you always start to notice defects later.
The damage to the plastic could be related to the damage to the bumper that has been sprayed over
