Bumper is an important part that protects the front and the back part of the body in case of an accident. The history of the modern bumper began in 1976 when the company SIMCA for the first time applied integrated plastic bumpers. Very quickly they spread among the carmakers in Europe. At that time this part, as a rule, was stained black. Sometimes there were met bumpers with decorative chrome inserts. At the same time plastic linings on the sidewalls of the car, which were called "side bumpers", became widespread. With European cars’ exports to the U.S. a new bumper was also "exported". It had its own national characteristics - mainly they were not plastic, but chrome and aluminium.

Later in 80s contrast integrated bumpers became widespread. Their shape takes into account aerodynamic requirements. Therefore, their design was more complicated: the bottom of the bumper was similar to a spoiler, the function of which was to reduce the air flow under the body. Also, there were special sockets designed for fog lights and turn indicators mounting. Soon the fashion changed and there appeared bumpers that were painted into the body colour. These were almost the same integrated bumper but with some differences. The main one is the production material. Instead of plastic fibreglass and thermoplastic were used. In addition, inside the bumper there were metallic boosters, which better withstand possible deformations. The disadvantages of such bumpers are fragility, complexity, high cost and high cost of repairs.

With regard to the most modern bumpers, mostly they differ in the shape. They are not more an individual designer's idea, but the extension of a car. Whatever happened to your bumper or other parts of the car body - sidewalls, boot or boot lid, take seriously car parts buying. Do not order low-quality parts. In the online store you can order any of the original car part at an excellent price.

Bumper Repair
  • For minor scratches and paintwork chips use polishing and, if necessary, a suitable color paint. In the case of severely deep scratches, the surface of the bumper first needs applying a layer of putty, primer, drying, and then polishing and painting.
  • To remove dents on the plastic bumper its surface is first heated with a heat gun, then given it original shape by means of special tools. After the bumper has cooled, it primed and painted. In case of a metal bumper, a dent is fixed with a hammer and a knockout or with a special straightening equipment.
  • Bumpers produced by cold moulding, are repaired by gluing. A special glue is used, often based on polyurethane. Before gluing the surface should be cleaned and degreased.
  • Bumpers made by hot forming are restored by heat sealing. This is the best way to eliminate chips, breaks and cracks.
  • Bumpers made of polyester resins, when having breaks, are restored by lamination. During the process the lost bumper parts are replaced by the similar ones placing inside a special reinforced mesh with the adhesive composition on it. After the bumper surface has hardened, it is polished.
Replacing the bumper

If the bumper repair is not possible, it should be replaced. Some motorists think it's not so hard and wanting to save money, try to replace it by themselves. However, in the absence of experience, knowledge of attachment features to a particular model, and professional tools, it can take a lot of time and does not guarantee the desired result. Therefore it is better to entrust the bumper replacement to professionals at service centers.
