Repairman Sanding a Car Bumper  - Insurance Company in Staten Island, NY
 
 
Our trained technicians employ the latest repair techniques, including reshaping bumper dents back to their original shape, as well as replacing with a new or refurbished part.
The repair includes all priming, sealing, and refinishing to bring the damaged area back to its pre-accident condition.
We start by inspecting the damage to see if it qualifies for our Express Bumper Service.
 
These are typically of 3 hours repair or less. Scrapes, minor cracks and small gouges would qualify.
The vehicle is prewashed to inspect for additional damage and prepare the parts for repair.
The bumper is removed and disassembled to be repaired and refinished.
This is an important step as this ensures paint is applied to all edges so it will not peel in the future.
 
At this time the vehicle is sent to detail while the bumper is being repaired by sanding, reforming or plastic welding cracks and mounting areas.
Primer is then applied to the prepped repair area.
After curing for a half hour or so, the primer is sanded to remove imperfections and provide a smooth finish for paint to be applied.
 
After mixing the correct color according to the vehicle paint code and tinting as necessary, the basecoat is then applied only in the repaired area and “blended” into the original color.
Clearcoat application is the final step in the painting process. Basecoat does not provide UV protection and is not shiny therefore a clearcoat must be applied over the entire part sealing it from the elements. Once the clearcoat is baked through a cure cycle for a half hour or so and the part has completely cooled, any imperfections are sanded and buffed before being reinstalled. The Car-Tech Collision technicians complete the reassembly of the vehicle, ensuring all fasteners are in their proper place. Each auto body collision repair job, whether it is a single bumper or a complete overhaul is thoroughly cleaned inside and out. Every surface of the vehicle is cleaned and dried and prepared for the customer pick up.
