Cool Car Bumper Advice

Things To Consider When Buying A Car Bumper
The bumper functions as an invisible barrier between your car's front and other objects. Although the bumper doesn't offer any protection for passengers however it does absorb some of the impact. It also acts as a shield to protect the essential parts of your car like the radiator, engine, and drivetrain. Accidents do happen. Fender benders can leave you with a damaged car, but it's not severe enough to warrant insurance coverage to cover repairs. You may need to replace just the bumper in this case. Since bumpers aren't functional mechanically, you can find an alternative part in the local salvage yard. If your vehicle's front (or rear depending on the bumper) is clean, you might be able to purchase a functioning bumper for a reasonable price. Different bumpers may not be equal. Different materials may have different advantages and drawbacks. Modern automobiles are made from fiberglass, plastic, and aluminum. Reinforcement in the interior may also be made of various materials. See this excellent car bumper model for info.

What types of bumper damage can be repaired?
