How Bumper Buddies Repairs Deep Bumper Scratches

Published On: September 25, 2019

Whether you get sideswiped, keyed, or rear-ended, scratches on your bumper are unsightly and, unfortunately, more common than you’d probably like. Your car projects a statement about you to the world, so you want to make sure that you’re not driving around in a battered vehicle.  Luckily, Phoenix residents don’t have to worry about the hassle of taking their car to a body shop for repairs. With Bumper Buddies mobile bumper repair service, your car will look as good as new in just a matter of hours. Here is how we repair deep bumper scratches from the convenience of virtually any location.


We first prepare the area for treatment by thoroughly cleaning it and removing any traces of dust or debris. We then sand the area down and smooth any rough edges to get ready for filler.


If any denting has occurred during the incident, we will use a specialized heat tool to reshape your bumper back to its original form. The heat gun makes the metal more malleable and allows us to manipulate it back to good form before it cools and sets.

Body Filler

The most crucial part of the scratch repair process is the use of body filler. Deep scratches take away part of your car body in addition to removing the paint, so the use of filler is often needed in order to fill in the area and restore it to like-new condition. We apply the filler evenly and firmly to maximize adhesion and minimize the risk of air entrapment.


Sand & Prime

Once the filler has been spread evenly into the proper shape, we let it dry and then use a sander to level the surface. The next step is to apply a coat of primer, which will help the paint adhere to the area.


Once the primer has dried, we will proceed to paint the area. Here at Bumper Buddies, we always use computer-matched PPG paint that perfectly matches your vehicle’s original paint job. We blend the new paint into the original in order to ensure a seamless appearance with no discoloration or patches. The final step is to apply a glossy, protective clear coat and let dry thoroughly.
