Hey Guys,

My bumper needs some love and might even shave/mold some things while im at it.

Was wondering what the best method, tools, and materials would be to use.

I thought of going to HF and buying a plastic welder to start....

use 3m flexible plastic repair for your filler the number for the stuff we use at the shop is 5887. it is made for plastic bumpers. youre going to need a tpo (thermo polyolefin) spray adhesion promoter, sand paper and blocks, plastic welder, lots of time

The 3m stuff is easier to find. Or use lord fusor. Both are similar. I think fusor you need the gun to use it. I would practice on a crap bumper before doing the one you will be using.

^^practice on scrap first. id give you a hand if you were down here. if you have any problems feel free to shoot me a message. the 3m and most other stuff wont stick and feather edge into the plastic without spraying an adhesion promoter first
