Re: seicento rear bumper

Is yours totally bent? Trouble with most breakers yards is that to find one in the right colour is one thing but to find one without paint damage is nearly impossible. Usually best getting one and spraying it.

I think there are a few parts websites that you can put your required panel and colour, into a search engine then you put in your phone and email and the website sends your request around breakers yards. They then call or email you if they have the part.

not so much bent as cracked and scuffed - if i were to pay to have a new 1 sprayed i spose i may as well bodge this one with filler or sumit and spray it

how much dya reckon spraying would cost?

Re: seicento rear bumper

use a heat gun gently and push where its bent and normally it pops it straight again. be carefull with the heat gun because you dont want to burn the bumper you just want to warm it up a bit.

if theres any holes in it then plastic weld dont just use filler etc. you can get plastic welding kits cheap enough on ebay with the rods.
