Repairing and retexturing a Ford Explorer bumper cover
This video demonstrates, from start to finish, how to repair a textured
plastic bumper cover using a hot air plastic welder. After the plastic
welding is complete, the dents and low spots in the bumper are filled with
epoxy filler which is then sanded down to match the original contour. The
bumper cover is then retextured with MicroTex texture material from
Urethane Supply Company. Finally, the bumper cover is painted with Bumper
and Cladding Coat so that it matches the original color.

Trims: XLS, XLT, Eddie Bauer, Limited
What I have to say about the 2002 Ford Explorer: New notable changed for
the Explorer includes a redesigned exterior and interior. Trims range from
the base XLS, to the mid level XLT, to the Luxurious Eddie Bauer and
Limited. The Explorer also now features more luxury appointments for 2002
as well as good rugged off road looks. Material quality is somewhat good.
but not the best. Low resale value is also a major turn off for this SUV.
All in all great SUV from Ford, hopefully it can take on the competition
from the Japanese brands. Facebook Page:
