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.
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.

This is a little run left in the clear coat. 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 Clear Coat (Base / Clear) - Spot Repair
This is a 3 stage pearl white mazda that is having a spot repair performed
on the front bumper cover. It it being sprayed with BASF RM onyx waterborne
paint and RM DC5600 clear coat. The clear coat is blended and polished to
an undetectable transition. This repair will hold out well but ideally the
entire bumper cover should be painted the highest quality job. This was
repaired by blending the clear as the customer requested an economical
repair. The price differs from about $175 this way to about $500 to do the
entire bumper cover. The way a three stage paint works is the first part of
the paint is a solid color sprayed to cover the primer. Once that is done a
pearl coat is sprayed overtop to give it a deep pearl effect. It is all
topped with a clearcoat and the clearcoat is blended using a clearcoat
blender (UBR200). The blender is mixed into some activated clear coat also.
The entire job is polished at the end to remove the slight roughness caused
from the clear tapering out.
