  2. you can do that without fiberglass. ABS plastic dissolves in acetone. instead of using fiberglass you cut a piece of ABS plastic (typical bumper, the harder brittle pieces of plastic used in the interior are in ABS) into small pieces and put in a glass jar, cover it with pure acetone. Close the jar tightly. In 12 to 24 hours, you will get a liquid plastic. If it is to liquid leave the jar open until you reach the desired consistency and apply like you would have done with epoxide. Clean the area that needs to be repaired with acetone before you apply it. I let it sit and harden for 2 days to be sure that is full strength.

  3. Hey man, ever think about muting the grinding noise?

  4. I can't find the repair kit on 1A Auto's website can you provide a link?

  5. Yeah ima just pay a body shop πŸ˜‚

  6. How long did you wait? What amount of time would you recommend to wait before 1st sanding?

  7. This is like the best video I have seen yet thank you.

  8. Thanks for the car Im working on this is the perfect way to repair it

  9. I felt the fiberglass in my hands ☠️

  10. Excellent job here , really good video

  11. Need to use filler primer and sand entire bumper with 400-600 grit. Use a real 2 part clear coat. If using a rattle can use β€œspray max 2k” with activator. The urethane clear coat will keep the base coat protected and it will look nice. Also, don’t use fiberglass, use epoxy

  12. the 4 or 5 guys having an OCD attack about this being a viable professional repair…. this was a DIY to save a Cracked beated up bumper on a car that probably won't last another 2 yrs…. So why would anyone want to fork out 300 dollars for an unpainted bumper and have it primed and painted for another 200 and 20 bucks in clips cause u have to special order them as no one locally has them ready on the shelf to buy… This repair if done right will last longer than the remaining life of the car… only thing i would do differently is id prep the entire bumper and paint and primer it completely. I keep a Pint of my car's matching color and a compressor and gun in my garage just cause…. u never know….

  13. Cool. plan to do this to my 04 Honda Accord. it has over the years had a tendacy of crunching into payment when i come out of steep driveways. this will keep me from having to replace the bumper.

  14. Straight to the point,welldone man,great job.

  15. How much do something like this cost πŸ€”

  16. Not the materials I was thinking you would use for the repair.
