Bumper repair in Standish, like all car body repair work, is a specialised skill. You may think you can tap that dent out with a hammer. The skill comes in knowing where to tap and how hard. Get it wrong and you cause further damage that may require expensive replacement. Bumpers on today’s cars may be made from plastic, rubber, aluminium or even steel. They are designed differently on some vehicles in that they don’t span the width of the car. The bumper may cover the centre with bumper barriers on the corners. Bumpers are not designed to protect the occupant of the car. Previous decades before fuel efficiency was an issue, bumpers were heavy. They were made of steel and chromed with a heavy application. The bumper was as wide as the car and wrapped around both corners. It extended out several inches.
These bumpers gave as good as they got. In Standish, bumper repair meant straightening the steel, sanding it down and rechrome. They could prevent damage to the front end of your car and the occupants but when they hit something else, they could do a lot of damage. Today, bumpers are still effective at their job. They sit sixteen to twenty inches from the ground and protect the grill, body, fuel tank, cooling system and exhaust at speeds from 1.5 to 2.5 miles per hour. Not much protection at high speeds but then those would be crashes not bumps. That’s the speed you are likely to be going when you back into an immovable object or get too close and bump obstacles in your forward path.
