Fiesta Front Bumper Scuff

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

Looking for some advice. Kerbed my front bumper this morning parking somewhere I don't usually park and not paying attention to how high the kerb was. Just been quoted £200 to get it repaired. I don't feel the damage is that bad. A small(ish) scuff on the left side, scuffed the red front splitter and a small finger nail size chip on the right side (see photos).

Anyone have any advice on the best way to repair it and if it is something I could do myself? Scuffs don't seem too deep. 

 

Thanks!

£200 is about average where I live, at least all your bumper will get done for that. Doing it yourself might be difficult to colour match perfectly as even body shops can have difficulty matching it perfectly and they have all the tools needed at their disposal.

Do you not think it'd be better to try it myself since its an area that you probably won't see considering the price? I might have to consider paying that then!

Try chips away as @Bobr said or try some t-cut or compound to see if it might remove the white scuffs

Thanks both. I will give them a try. I might try some T-Cut just to see how good I can get it. Can probably remove the small scuff with some.
