This Audi A3 had a large crack to the rear bumper.

The first step was to glue the crack from behind back together and then it could be plastic welded from the front and reinforced with alluminium mesh.

Once the crack had been repaired, the vehicle was masked ready for application of a 2 component primer.

The primer was cured and then sanded flat ready for the professional application of base coat and lacquer.

After the final coat of lacquer had been applied, any minor dust particles were removed and then machine polished back to a high gloss finish.

The total time for this repair was approximately 5 hours.
