2004 Chevrolet SSR Rear Bumper Cover
This Chevrolet SSR was sitting at the Chevrolet dealership. A customer who was leaving the dealership backed into the rare 2004 Chevrolet SSR. The bumper cover is discontinued and no longer available. When the bumper cover WAS available, it cost over $1,000! The dealership was unable to find a salvage or used bumper cover either. Fortunately for them, we were close by, so they called the experts at Encore Bumpers to save them.
We inspected the bumper cover and discovered that it had been previously hit and poorly repaired. It had filler on it in areas as thick as 1/4 inch. This made the work tougher because we had to remove all of the old filler. Not only that, but the flange at the top had broken away from the bumper.
We heated the bumper to soften the plastic. While it was soft, we pushed out the dent and carefully massaged the dents so well that almost no filler was required! The flange was welded back into place using a Nitro Fuzer nitrogen plastic welder from Polyvance. The finished bumper looked great and the customer was ecstatic.
