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.

How to Repair a Cracked Bumper

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.

Deep Scratch Removal using sand paper and a Rotary Buffer to Polish
This is a technique of removing deep scratches that needs a very light hand
and a lot of car not to go through the clear coat into the base coat of the
paint. I used 1500 grit sand paper (real lightly) and then polished out the
sanding marks using an orange hex logic pad from chemical guys and my

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.
