PostSubject: Bodywork Repair   Mon Jan 13, 2014 3:46 pm

Few photos of my Grey Toyota Cynos ,1995, 1.3.
Looking for bit of advice on best way to go about cleaning this up a bit.
Links to products in Halfords would be helpful that was used by someone on same car before.









_____________________________________________________________________________

Bit of filling to be done here on this bit as well.

Again, a link to product be handy.



_______________________________________________________________________________

Someone had parked blocking a good bit of driveway, swung in and the tow bar got caught in the bumper and pulled it out ripping the O ring that catches onto the body. Same on opposite side as well  Rolling Eyes 



_________________________________________________________________________________

The way it used to look, not gonna get it like that again, but be nice to have it looking decent enough.
Any help be great.

For bumper you'll need:
120 grit sand paper
320 grit sand paper
600 grit sand paper
Filler
Paint, hardner, lacquer and plastic primer

Sand the marks out as best you can with the 120 then whatever marks are too deep fill them and sand down first with the 120 and then with the 320 so it's nice and smooth

Sand the rest of the bumper with 320 and primer the area were you used the filler or removed the paint

Then use the 600 to sand the primer so you have a smooth finish for applying your paint and laquer
_____________________

Your gonna have to treat that rust on the quarter panel

A wire brush tool that you put in a drill should do it

There looks to be a lot of filler on it so your best off removing the loose bits and refilling it cause you'd need a good panel beater to sort it out properly

Again use the same method for preping the bumper

________________

A few self tapping screws up into the bumper and wing will sort your bumper or you could take it off and get some bits welded on by a plastic welder

Thanks for that detailed reply Ciaran, much appreciated.
Will grab a few bits tomorrow to get a start on it and see how I get on.

I'll throw a few pics up as I go along.

@pete, I'll have a gander around YouTube for something similar.

I had an identical mark on my cynos front bumper when I bought it.

You'd be better off getting a bodyshop to sort all those niggly bits out for you. I had mine resprayed when I got it.

If you can afford it go to a body shop. Some body shops do great prices so shop around.
DIY body jobs with rattle cans don't come out great at best.

The more I look at it and think about it, I'd probably make a balls of it!

There is a place that's more or less right beside me and I know a friend of a friend that works in a place and wherever else is around.

Roughly, how much would ya be talking about? Just a ball park figure so I'd know I'm not getting ripped off.

To give you an idea of prices i had the whole front end of a starlet sprayed for 700.

The full spray of the cynos was below 2,000.

Both were very high quality jobs using water based paint and dust removal oven to bake the paint

150-250 for bumper
300-400 for the quarter panel cause it'll have to be blown onto the door to match it
You could fix the other bumper yourself

With panel beaters price reflects quality most of the time

Won't be getting the full job anyway after reading cannon's idea of the price Very Happy 

Would take my chances with the rattle can job.

If I got the bumper done close to around the €150, I'd go for that and do a job on the rear and the rust job meself and dicky it up somehow.

In the 8 years or so I 've had it, I've done the brake pads once, clutch, couple of batteries and tyres. Not bad for a car that cost me €1300 at the time!

There is 117,000 km on the clock at the moment so it's probably best to get a service done on it first and see what way it's fixed before worrying how it looks.
