Bumper Help 7 Years, 2 Months ago  
Hi Guys,

Just wandering if anyone can help us. We bought a Lunar Pinnacle 2008 motor home 6 weeks ago, she's lovely but to our disappointment someone cracked our rear nearside bumper, we are having heavens own job trying to find a replacement. I have been told Lunar are from Belgium but i can't find anything on the net (Mind you, I'm a computer virgin practically) if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated. We have had it to a good garage but it can't be repaired:(

Hard luck damaging the bumper (?) - well, rear trim panel!

I would assume that the panel is made of some sort of thermo-plastic. That being the case it should be quite simple to have it repaired by plastic welding. The Panels are often made in white plastic and then painted, so a weld and a re-spray should be a fairly simple and inexpensive job if done by an expert.

If you are skilled with your hands you can even do it yourself.

Have a look at this video, for example:

Or speak to these people, www.thebumperman.co.uk/ or someone equivalent. I found these in a few seconds by searching on Google, using the search terms 'plastic bumper welding'

WE have the same problem with vehicles in our Hire fleet,www.scottishtourer.co.uk
bumpers are a rip off to buy from the dealers.... if you can get one.
Our local body shop has a plastic welder after they have been repaired you cant tell the difference fromn ew and usually costs us around £85.00 per repair
