How to Repair a Cracked Bumper

Visit http://www.refinishnetwork.com for more auto body repair information. This is a bumper repair on a Chrysler 300 that has a split in the rear bumper cover. Shown here is Kent Repair Epoxy adhesive, Evercoat Polyflex and BASF urethane primer. To start the bumper is washed to inspect for further damages. There is a small tear that may not be visible on the video but there is a clear hole in the cover. The hole is first tapered out on both sides and reinforced on the back and front with epoxy. The epoxy is sanded fairly straight with a DA sander but final blocked with flexible polyester putty. You can simply finish in epoxy and it would make for a better job, however it sands much tougher.

Visit us @ http://www.refinishnetwork.com Refinish Network consists of various professional and enthusiast painters whom work collectively to help eachother out using the websites discussion forum.

It is removed with no ghosting by applying polyester putty over the run first, then sanding it down flat and polishing to shine. It sucks to have happen but every painter has had a clear coat run from time to time. Removing a run takes some patience and time. but you can save a paint job when its done right. Let the run dry thoroughly before attempting this of the run can tear up from the clear coat. I have gotten many clear coat runs and many have resulted in resprays, as time goes on you get better and it happens much less...some clear coats are more prone to run then others to so consider changing your clearcoat or equipment set-up if you keep getting em!





How to Blend Car Paint (Spot Repair)
Visit http://www.refinishnetwork.com for more videos, repair article, auto body repair courses and auto body repair information. Join other auto body technicians and discuss car painting techniques with auto body professionals and enthusiasts. This is a spot repair (blow in) on the front of a dodge bumper. This is a metallic blue being blended and partially cleared. The tape on the edges is known in the auto body repair trade as a back mask where the clear is blended on the roll of an edge. This is in no way a top quality repair, it is an economical repair suited best for used car lots and lease return vehicle. I must say they do still hold up pretty well when done properly. The bumper was polished with a coarse compound for the blender to adhere while the rest of the area that was cleared got sanded with 3000 grit paper, except the primer was 600. This was a scratch originally that was feathered out and primed. For more information check out our website at www.refinishnetwork.com

Join other auto body technicians and discuss car painting techniques with auto body professionals and enthusiasts. This shows a minor scrape on a Mazda Miata. The scratch was feathered out, primed and painted using BASF paint. There are many ways to get the job done, this is what was done here: 1. The scratch was feathered out using 280 grit paper until each color was seperated around 1/2". 2. Next it was backsanded to allow space for the primer to adhere. 3. It was primed with 2 coats of Glasurit 285-10/20 direct to metal urethane primer and allowed to dry. It was primed with a devilbiss finishline HVLP gun with a 1.6 tip. 4. Next it was blocksanded using 320 paper, then final sanded with some 400-500 grit paper. Using a block is optional there but recommended. 5. After taping it up it was painted using RM Diamont basecoat in 3 coats. Each coat was allowed to flash about 5 minutes before the next one. Then 15 minutes before clearing. An Iwata LPH400 was used to apply the basecoat at about 20 psi. 6. The clear coat used here was BASF DC5335 Glamour clear. It was applied in 2 coats with about 10 minutes between coats. It was applied using an Iwata W400 with about 26 PSI at the gauge. A few dirt nibs were colorsanded and polished afterwards.





How to Fix a Scratch on a Car - Cheap/Economical Repair
On the quality scale I'd give this around a 6/10. The best way to do this is removing the moldings from the vehicle and using a urethane 2k primer. It should hold up pretty well still, rattle can primer isn't the best choice, but not being over any body filler makes it not so bad here. Sorry, lost video after the 2nd coat of base also.
