Body work Repair

Well i dropped my 75 off to the bodywork place this morning following its motorbike incident.

the 75 also has a previous car park war wound to the back bumper all paint missing deep scratch.

The body shop have offered to do this aswell as a small scratch on door ( im not to fussed about this)

for 250.00 which i think is not bad.

but im wondering if its just easier to change the bumper is it much of a job as all the damage is to the bumper, there is a 2mm scratch above to body which i can live with.

Replacing the rear bumper is pretty easy once you know how. I can do it alone in about ten minutes. There may even be a How To if you search. Alternatively, it's described in the Haynes manual.

Hi

sorry to dissapoint, but you will more than likely find any replacement is in a worse condition.

i have had this before where a slavage yard says they have a good condition/paint panel, door etc, only to find covered in dents and scratches.

bought a 'excellent' carpet once, got it delivered...covered in fag burns!.

so go and look and check if it looks good it is the same colour (as it could have been repainted anyway)
