Plastic bumper dent repairs....

I recently picked up an 02 gt2 and while detailing the car, noticed a dollar coin sized crease on the rear bumper.... anyone have any luck with pdr or will the bumper need to be filled and repainted, thanks. Scott

Unfortunately the Urethane bumpers don't take well to being repainted... you run the risk of the paint bubbling or even cracking. To do it right the bumper needs to be replaced.

PDR doesn't work well on the poly compounds. However, a qualified repair facility that uses appropriate plastic welding / compounds, PAP (plastic adhesion promoter, the correct flexible primer, and quality base and clear

coat paints can repair it to factory look and performance. I do not think you need to get a new bumper......Just find out which Body Shop your local Porsche dealer uses. To repair and refinish a bumper cover should

not be terribly expensive. Depending on the location they may be able to blend as well.

You may also try carefully using a heat gun (or blow dryer on hot) to see what comes out.........But be careful not to get the paint over 200 degrees or it will fail (bubble, peel, etc.). Here is a link if you want to try it: Click Here

Good luck!
