Bumper filllers
« on: March 09 2018, 10:15:11 PM »
So my front right bumper filler has now completely disintegrated.  Do I get the Highway Stars flexible plastic or the Spool Fool fiberglass?

I went fiberglass from the eBay. Though I definitely  see supporting a part of the community.

Go with 'glass and be done with it.


Having concave plastic, black in color. facing the sun is just asking for it.   Might as well get a material that isn't a slave to UV.

I think you are right.  The originals lasted a long time but have been inside a garage or storage most of the time.

I think it is your acid rain! :P I've never had a problem with fillers and I drove my old 85 T-Type year round.  Although, the fillers were full of snow in the winter!

The southern cars seem to be bad for that and baking the crap out of the interior!

My original filler cracked one day.  Within a month, the other three cracked, and the first one got a second crack.

It was actually pretty amazing how they all cracked in three weeks when the car was 20 years old.



In the south, you just can't paint a concave surface black and point it at the sun. That never works out well.

White car's fillers did not survive the trip to Lorenz's. I blame Ohio air :).
Can't be Canuck winters after Arizona baking :o
