If it is difficult to obtain a replacement part or the damage to a bumper is limited, you can easily repair a cracked bumper by using 3Ms Plastic Repair Materials.
Repairing means there is no waiting time and no needs for costly purchase of replacement parts - instead you can invoice for valuable work time, saving money for you and the customer.
Using the 3M Flexible Plastic Repair Adhesive and 3M Crack Seal Tape, provides you with a fast and reliable method of restoring a "like new" appearance for the bumper.
Clean the area with a soft cloth (i.e. 3M™ Panel wipe and a suitable degreaser).
Drill a hole of 4-6 mm in diameter at the base of the crack in order to release stress and prevent further extension of the crack.
Clean the area inside and outside using 3M™ VHB™ Surface Cleaner or 3M™ General purpose Adhesive Cleaner 08984 applied with a 3M™ Professional Panel Wipe 34567.
To finish the repair and prepare for the primer, the use of a Plastic Filler Product is recommended.
Use either 3M™ Flexible Plastic Filler 05887 for plastic-like performance and excellent sanding and feather-edging, or use 3M™ Plastic Filler 51009.
