    Does anyone know where I can get a abs back bumper repaired or possibly a new one for a Rimor Sailer 645tc Mercedes 2002. I know southdowns is our nearest in southampton but is there an alternative for Rimors ?

    I can't remember who he used but some years ago my son had a 50mm hole punched in his Toyota rear plastic bumper and this was repaired on our driveway by Chipsaway or similar ... plenty on the net if you Google.

    I repaired the bumper on my '05 Burstner with some aluminium plates, Tiger seal and pop rivets then got it sprayed at a local body shop. New bumper was over £1500 :eek:
    Will post a pic when I get to my pc.

    Here's the damage, don't have an "after" pic handy, but it's like new now :) So you might like to have a go at fixing it yourself if you have the time ?

    Do you have the bits that have broken off or where they shattered?
    If you have the bits they may be able to be plastic welded or stitched together or even fibreglassing and then filling and painting on top.

    Thank you everyone- it is only a small crack and can be mended with a kit and colour matched paint apparently. So its of to the body shop ( not the one on the high street!)
