Touching up plastic bumpers.

Post by knebby on Fri 24 Apr 2015 - 8:02

Now ive got scrapes on three of the four corners I'm thinking of smartening them up. A bit of rubbing down will be needed as the plastic is scored and rough. Anyone know how easy this is with plastic and how it's done?

I know the cans of Ruby Red are only available on special order from Halfords and I'm not too optimistic about the match cos their touch-up pot of Ruby Red is miles out.

I scraped the rear corner on mine shortly after getting it. Used a company called Chips Away they did a good job.

If you can flat it back a bit without going through the colour coat, you could try just putting lacquer on it to even out the scrapes a bit.
