Una guía para eliminar rasguños de parachoques de plástico negro

Cómo quitar arañazos de parachoques de plástico negroBlack plastic bumpers are a common feature of cars, boats, and motorbikes. Black trim is a popular option due to its versatile nature; it blends well with the color scheme of any vehicle, and it?s a cheap, effective means of protecting the exterior of your car.

It?s an unfortunate occurrence, but as we all know ? accidents happen. A careless driver can scratch your bumper in the mall parking lot as they try to navigate their way into the parking spot next to you. Perhaps you scuff your bumper as you pull into your garage at home.

Whatever the reason for the fresh scratch on your bumper, it doesn?t change the fact that your car?s bumper is now an eyesore that?s frustrating you. A scuff or scratch on your bumper is annoying to behold, and there?s a reason why so many cars on the road have this damage. Scratches and scuffs are minor damage that insurance companies don?t like to pay out to repair.

If you call your insurer and ask them to cover the cost, the chances are that they?ll hit you with an excess that?s more than the value of the repair. The insurance company is also likely to increase your monthly premium. These facts mean that it?s just not worth it to submit a claim to the insurance, and it?s the reason why so many car bumpers have scuffs or scratches that their owners refuse to repair.

However, if you?re a conscientious car owner, that scuff or scratch is eating away at your mind every time you step into your car. There?s nothing worse than buying a new car and scuffing the bumper in the first few months of ownership. This kind of damage is merely irritating and detracts from the visual effect, especially if it?s a new car.

So, how do you repair the scuff or scratch, without spending a fortune? Here?s a brief guide of everything you need to know about restaurando tu parachoques a su antigua gloria.


Evaluar el daño

Before you rush out and spend money on restoration tools and equipment to repair the scuff or scratch, you need to examine the damage properly. Many people may view a scuff or scratch as a minor cosmetic problem. However, the reality is that there could be damage that?s not entirely visible on the surface.

Check how your bumper lines up to the panel. Even a small scuff or bump can dislodge the grommets and plugs that attach your bumper to the frame or body. If you notice that it?s of alignment, this is a job for a panel beater workshop, not a DIY fix.

Make sure that you note the depth and severity of damage; there?s a difference between the two types. Scuffs are minor damage where the outside of the bumper makes contact with another surface leaving minor, shallow marks across the bumper. Some scuffs are easy to buff out with a cloth and a bit of abrasive polish, while others may require more work to fix.

A scratch occurs when another surface or object penetrates the bumper. As with scuffs, they vary in severity. You may be able to get away with repairing the bumper without the need for filler if the scratch isn?t too severe.

After assessing the damage, it?s time to prepare your tools to get the job done.

Un proceso paso a paso para restaurar su parachoques

The majority of scuffs and scratches are easy to fix without removing the bumper from the vehicle. However, if the damage is in a hard-to-reach spot, you may have to remove the bumper. In this case, it?s best to follow the manufacturer guidelines in your owner?s manual or send the car to the body shop for repair.

Paso 1- Lijarlo (rasguños profundos)

Sumerja su papel de lija de grano 40 en un poco de alcohol y lije todas las áreas afiladas del rasguño hasta que quede suave. Después de eso, use el grano 40 para limpiar los bordes ásperos que deja el papel de lija de grano 80.

Step 2 ? Fill it Up (Deep Scratches)

Mezcle un poco de relleno de cuerpo negro siguiendo las pautas del producto. Aplique la masilla al rasguño hasta que el daño ya no sea visible. Use una cuchilla utilitaria para eliminar el exceso y luego espere a que se seque y cure por completo antes de seguir el siguiente paso.

Step 3 ? Sand it Down (Deep Scratches and Scuffs)

Use el papel de lija de grano 80 para lijar la masilla hasta que esté suave y se ajuste al contorno del parachoques. Este paso también se aplica a las rozaduras. La idea es crear una superficie que tenga forma y líneas que coincidan con el resto del parachoques. Después de pelar y contornear, use el grano 400 con un poco de agua para producir una superficie lisa. Refine la superficie aún más con el papel de agua de grano 600.

Step 4 ? Dry and Eye

Wait until the surface is cured and assess your work. Make sure that the bumper looks neat and there?s no bumps or excess filler in any area.

Step 5 ? Buff it Out

Take your black body polish and apply it to the repair surface using a microfiber cloth to prevent further scratching or scuffs. Choose a buffing product that contains nano-polymer additives to ensure a lasting shine on the surface. It?s critical to use a premium-quality product that provides a showroom finish and lasts for a minimum of 6-months between applications.

Step 6 ? Admire Your work

Después de terminar la mejora, retroceda y admire su trabajo, su parachoques se verá como nuevo.

Un pensamiento final

Esta técnica de reparación funcionará para todos los demás molduras de plástico negro en su automóvil, así como otros vehículos como plásticos para motocicletas y molduras para embarcaciones. ¡Sigue las pautas y restaura tu vehículo a su antigua gloria!
