How do the professionals fix a bumper scuff?
The bumper scuff repair specialists start by assessing the scratch, whether it’s light or heavy. It helps them to ideate and decide on the exact process required to fix it efficiently.
Light bumper scuff is easy to remove. But when you have made a major crash, there will not be just a scratch but a dent as well.
Step 1: Cleaning the bumper
The bumper scuff repair specialists clean the area first to assess the scratch closely. They use simple soap, water, and sponge to avoid further damage. Before applying the masking tape, they ensure that there leaves no grim, dust, or wax.
Step 2: Mask around the scratch
The experts apply the masking tape around the lights and adjacent panels to avoid spraying over them. Before sanding, the specialists cover the area properly.
Step 3: Sanding on the scuff
The professionals use sheets of coarse sanding paper to wrap it around the scuff pad. They start sanding the bumper with pressure until the scratch removes and the area gets smoothen. Then, once they get the job done, they clean the bumper until the surface gets even.
Step 4: Filling the scratches
Now, the specialists use a scratch-filling putty and spread over the bumper scuff. The more the coat will even, the better it will stick to the bumper. Then, they let it dry for some minutes and re-sand the area again to smoothen the surface.
Step 5: Apply the primer
The experts spray the surface primer at least three coats in a smooth motion. Then, they leave it for some hours and re-sand the area again. The specialists make sure that everything gets blended perfectly. Once sanding has been done, they wipe the area with a clean and damp cloth.
Step 6: Painting the bumper
After some hours of applying primer, the professionals paint the affected area and put several coats. They leave the last coat to dry for a few minutes and use the blending solvent.
Step 7: Applying a clear coat
Finally, the bumper scuff specialists use a clear coat over the paint to cover the entire area. And, the bumper will look as good as if replacing with a new one.
