Cracked Bumper Repair Process Video from Smart Auto Repairs on Vimeo.

Our mobile bumper repair service will follow the below process for a dented / scuffed bumper repair:


  • We clean the area of the scuffed/scratched/ dented plastic car bumper that we are going to paint with a special chemical that removes any grease or wax that may react with the paint.
  • We will repair the damaged area by way of heating, sanding or filling the damaged plastic bumper.
  • We scotch the plastic bumper area that is going to be painted, this helps key the area being painted.
  • We then prime the repaired area on the bumper and flat this down once it is dried.
  • Once primed, we then mix the colour on the van by taking the colour code from the vehicle and entering it into our computer.
  • The repaired area is the sprayed with the base coat and then lacquered.
  • When we have finished lacquering the bumper we use heat lamps to dry the lacquer this takes about 20-30 minutes.
  • Once dried we then flat and polish the repaired area if required.
