Bumper damage

Post by Doug » Thu Sep 21, 2017 8:57 pm

Despite having a rear camera and sensors I still managed to reverse in to a wooden post :cry:
Needless to say I wasn't very happy and only now can i relax knowing my pride and joy is once again back to its magnificent self

Before I connected my smart repair guy I asked my JLR dealer for the price of a new rear bumper valance (the black plastic bit), I was told you have to buy a complete bumper (in primer) at £425 :o

Luckily My repair guy which I have used in the past took one look at the damage and said "give me a few hours". The pictures don't do his work justice, you would never now the bumper had been damaged and repaired.
The dent in the plastic was removed using heat, when the grey area was sanded to remove deep scratches sprayed and blown in to match. The black plastic valance was sanded and filled then sprayed with textured paint.

I did this the beginning of this year..... Was also told you had to buy the whole bumper. Three attempts, four months later to respray it, it was finally confirmed all 3 components are separate and are only lightly heat welded together.

They talk such crap.

Hiya Corrie, can I ask how much the repair guy charged, and, are they a national Co ?, I hope I never have to use their services, but boy the finish is excellent

Sorry name wrong Doug

Was it good value and cost

I asked Corrie what it was when I should have been asking you, and are they national? I don't wish it to sound rude and ask about cost but I'm curious as against the Jag dealership

Gato,

Not one of these Chips A**y or Dent D***l firms which are franchise company's. Both have a very bad reputation in my area, but it's not to say in other areas your be given a terrible job.
Like with many things in life recommendation is so important.

My guy and his business partner only work in the Ipswich area and are complete perfectionists. They both used to work for a Swedish motor manufacturer (the one still making cars) at their vehicle holding facility before it shut down. It was classed as a production finishing centre which would correct any body defects and repair shipping damage before the transporters would deliver the vehicles to the dealers.

The cost was £240 and it took him 4hrs to complete. Previous work was for stone chips and cost less at around £100-£150.

Any one in the IP area in need of a "smart repair", I can place their details on the forum (if this is allowed) or by private message.

Looks a flawless repair! The removal of the scratches on the black plastic valance section is also very impressive, looks better than the original finish . . and all for a reasonable price too . . good outcome :)

Morning Doug,

Very reasonable price, and as Catwoman says, finish is sublime


Well done

Looks like a great repair. I'll swear there's a blind spot in the cameras and sensors because I've managed to do that in the exact same spot as you twice (although with minimal damage). Both times the beeps have only kicked in as I hit the pillar.
