Smart Repairs Question from Alan Ford

Submitted on 22/04/2013

Hi, unfortunately my daughter rode into the car yesterday leaving the front bumper damaged as per the pictures. As can be seen it's gone right through the paint and you can feel a slight ridge. So am looking for some advice on the options I have for repair and happy to give things a try myself. Also not far from you over in Kent either. Found your site on the web while looking around for body repairers. Thanks, Alan Model: Mercedes CLS

Hi Alan

Many thanks for your question.

I have looked at your attached photos and can see this is a straight forward small area re-spray (bumper scuff smart repair) It can be done in a morning or afternoon, which ever you prefer. 

Just call us if you wan to book in. 

If you want to attempt a method of repair your self, the only thing you can do, is an art brush cosmetic repair. The paint chip pen can be purchased from Mercedes or Halfords centers. This kind of repair works well on dark colors, silver can prove difficult,
