The client presented a 2007 Toyota Auris, with a scuff and small dent. Unfortunately, underneath this scuff was a poor previous repair job – a bad repaint, and a poor use of filler.
A Bad Respray
Removing the bumper protector revealed the common effect of using an unskilled company to repaint an area of a car.
Previous Overuse of Filler
This was a good example of some repairers unnecessary use of filler. Less is more. There was no damage behind it, only a bit lower down which needs to be refilled.
The finished Job:
The car was refilled and the bumper was repainted. Please note that to keep costs down, the client did not request a perfect finish (hence the bulge on top) as a bumper protector was to be fitted here.
