In order to secure the rear bumper, an auxiliary part is attached to it - an amplifier or a metal lining. Due to this, in a collision, the car body is practically not deformed, since the protective part takes the entire impact. The overlay represents the profile made of stainless food steel. It completely repeats all the shapes and curves of the car, so it perfectly complements its exterior. Most often, linings and amplifiers are made to order, depending on the structural features of the car body, but since such a part has been on the market for a relatively long time, a wide variety of models have already appeared that are suitable for certain cars.
Rear bumper cover prevents damage to the paint and varnish that covers the body of the car. Indeed, when loading various materials and things into the trunk, over time, scratches and scuffs appear in the area of \u200b\u200bthe rear bumper, which look extremely unaesthetic. If the car was previously protected by the necessary metal lining, then it will not need to be repainted again. It is also worth noting that in the event of an accident, it is the bumper amplifier that takes overmain blow. If the collision is not strong, then the part remains intact. Otherwise, the amplifier itself may be damaged, but the rear bumper of the car retains its original appearance.
The installation of this element on the rear bumper of the car must certainly be carried out by professionals in this field. There can be a whole variety of mounting methods and they depend both on the model of the car and on the type of lining itself. Often, food grade stainless steel parts are attached to the body with bolts and nuts, so they hold long enough and securely.
If a lighter metal is used as a lining, then its installation is even faster with the help of bolts or technical glue.
Often, the reinforcements and pads that protect the rear bumper are made of soft plastic. Most often, such accessories are sold complete with protective plates for machine thresholds. Even an inexperienced motorist can attach such a part using technical glue or double-sided adhesive tape. However, plastic nozzles and threshold amplifiers are not as reliable and durable as their steel counterparts. Plastic parts need to be replaced more often and are also not capable of absorbing most of the impact if a major accident occurs.
When mounting the protective caps on the rear bumper of the car, it is important to attach them as tightly as possible so that moisture and other debris do not accumulate under them. Therefore, often auxiliary fastenersthe material is glue, even if bolts are used to mount metal amplifiers. It helps to fill all the free space between the body itself and the lining, and also provides a more reliable adhesion of materials. The process of installing the amplifier on the thresholds does not take much time and does not require special skills and abilities.
During operation, the car's paintwork deteriorates. There are quite a few reasons for this - both external factors (rain, snow, frost and dirt) and mechanical damage (scratches, chips, abrasions). It is completely impossible to avoid the deterioration of the varnish and paint. But you can polish the body, which will help make the color like a new car
