Bumper Repair

"People Bump into each other first, and then they come see me!", Howard Khonn, manager at San Diego Bumper & Collision. When a plastic bumper is damaged; it doesn’t always have to be replaced. They can be saved with innovative auto repair techniques. Our Plastic Bumper Repair kit can repair dented, scratched, broken, torn, and scuffed bumpers for much less than replacing the whole bumper. Most repairs can be completed within a few hours, and we warranty all our work and paint for life.

Every repair starts with assessing the damage that is done to the bumper. Then the customer is given options on what can be done to the bumper to save them money or to do whats best for the car. The first option that is given is always the best option, which is the shop’s recommendation for repair. The best option begins with re-shaping and sanding down the damaged area. If they are deep scratches and/or gouges, then a polyurethane filter is added that is designed to remain flexible after the drying stages are completed. Then a final sanding is then required to restore the bumper to its original state. When the preparation is complete, a coat of primer is applied. Then the paint code is retrieved directly from your vehicle and is used to to match your vehicle’s color. Then after the paint formula is made, a generous coat is applied to the bumper, and then sealed with a generous amount of our clear coat application to protect the finish. Then the job is finished with a car wash and polish to make your vehicle look brand new again.

San Diego Bumper & Collision specializes in paint color matching and guarantees all our work and paint jobs for life.

Paintless Dent Repair

Dents and dings happen, and in some cases, you don’t even need to paint the car in order to repair the damage. Here at San Diego Bumper & Collision, we specialize in Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) in San Diego. We use this process when able to speed up the process of getting our customer’s car back on the road. The process for paintless dent removal is used to repair minor dents and dings by using special rods and reflective forces. Our technicians enter on the adjacent side of the damaged panel and carefully massage the dent until it is no longer visible. PDR jobs can be done in matter of minutes, and won’t leave proof of any damage or repair. This process keeps the original (OEM) paint of your car and is done without the use of fillers such as BONDO.
