This mini had a few nasty bashes from behind and as a result a split and hole appeared in the back bumper. A garage wanted to replace the whole bumper obviously as a cost. Using plastic welding techniques specific to SMART repairs the bumper was easily repaired and will be as strong as if it was new. All work guaranteed, done at home/work place and at a fraction of the price.
This van got a nasty knock from behind, the black plastic bumper was squished and the back arch was also dented. The door hinge also needed some attention. With some wiggling about to get things back into alignment it was then just a matter of body repair. The black bumper was repaired first, then the white metal on the wing and door was tackled. Once it was completed nobody would ever know, one happy van driver again.
Another victim of a driveway wall, the damage on this vehicle unfortunately not only damaged the bumper but put a nasty dent in the corner of the back wing. Using our SMART repair system the damage was repaired, paint and lacquer was blended out onto the wing panel and polished up. The blue metallic paint was mixed up in the back of the van and tweaked for a perfect match.
Im not so sure if this large bumper dent could have actually been any bigger, but using some special techniques 90% of the dent was popped back out leaving just some minor tweaks and paint work to complete. People often presume damage at this scale can not be repaired without a new bumper being fitted which would have been very costly. As this was a repair and completed on-site the customer only paid a fraction of the cost and did have to go out their way to have repaired.
This bumper suffered from something impacting it which resulted in the support bars behind the bumper pushing out causing a plastic bumper split. Many repair shops cant repair plastics, especially the black non painted bumpers. Luckily a SMART repair involves welding the plastic split together which not only makes it strong but prevents the crack from coming back. Special fillers and plastic paints are used to finish the repair.
This car had a small bumper split, but was quite deep. After being given some very high quotes nearly in the four figure mark the job came to Smarter Cars. The repair was completed at the customers home in only a few hours. The cost was only in the two figure mark, one happy car and one happy customer. Often quotes will be to have the bumper replaced as many places will not fix a split, but we can, why pay for what is totally unnecessary.
This is a typical example of a scuffed bumper that Smarter Cars repair all the time.
