CHEAP WAY TO FIX HOLE IN PLASTIC BUMPER
I do NOT do it this way,as I have all the different guns for the different types of adhesives made. Every manufacturer has their own gun. I am just posting this for the cheapest way to get the job done by a do-it-yourselfer. I am also a VERY particular auto body repairman and can do these repairs perfectly, and guarantee you won't be able to see ANY imperfection in the repair when I am done, even if you hawk eye the work. But if you don't want to pay for perfection, the job can be done for less, and you would see MINOR imperfections,.that you would also have to hawk eye to see.
This thread was asking how to fix it CHEAP, so that is why my first post didn't include the adhesive method.
There is also a brand made by SEM that has semi rigid/rigid repair adhesives.
Hard plastic bumper covers require a rigid adhesive, while a flexible bumper cover requires a semi rigid adhesive. It is very important to get the proper adhesive, for the type of plastic you are working with. There are also different drying times offered for different size jobs.
I actually had him doing some other body-work for me and hadn't asked him to fix the bumper. I had to get close to even see where he'd fixed it,and he did it for free - he said he just didn't feel right leaving such a small thing undone.
I'd recommend him to anyone - if time wasn't an issue.
I had a guy fix a hole in my bumper this fall and it's all but perfect. I've used 2 other different epoxies to fix a plastic ice-fishing sled - both have has held all winter in 2 different spots,both failed on 2 OTHER spots. It must have something to do with the size of the hole and how much flex is in those spots.
