The Quality Bumper Repair Process
Bumpers are usually the first part of your car to receive the impact in a collision. West Coast Body and Paint can repair your vehicle’s bumper, whether it is a minor damage, such as a dent, scratch, or indentation to major damage.
Minor damage can mean that our body technician will be able to save your bumper by repairing the damage.
Major damage may mean that the entire panel will need to be replaced. Our body technician will remove the damaged panel and replace it with a new one.
Painting the Bumper
Your car is composed of a number of separate sections welded or bolted together. Each separate part is called a panel, for example, quarter panels, lower panels, and rear body panels. Depending on the damage on your car, we will either spot paint the panel or paint the entire panel.
Spot Painting vs Full Panel Painting
In many body collisions or “simple” repaint situations, we have to spray complete panels instead of spot painting. Why? Because spot painting a number of minor dings scattered over an entire panel would look like leopard fur. It is much easier and the finished look much more uniform and professional on your car if the entire panel was completely prepared and painted all at once.
What determines whether a we spot paint or cover an entire panel of your car? It depends on the following criteria:
- type of existing paint finish
- style of existing paint finish
- size of repair area
- ability to color blend new paint into the surrounding body paint area
We always keep in mind that our goal is to apply paint in such a way that the repaired area, either spot painting or full panel painting, will leave your car look as if it had never been repaired or repainted.
“Oh boy where to start…my bumper was completely scratched with paint chipping and the hood of My car was like three different colors due to an auto body shop not being able to correctly match my paint. Jaider took the time and effort to check out all the ways we could go about fixing the issue. He was amazing! He had the car for about five days and I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the finished product. They do fantastic work and my car looks better then when I left the dealership. I trust Jaider and his crew with all my cars and will reference him to all my friends so glad I found west coast! Highly highly recommend if I could give ten stars I would!”
