Rear bumper protector removal & cost
I have a small crunch mark on the edge of the chrome bumper protector. This is just a chromed plastic part with a black plastic insert so I guessed it would be relatively inexpensive and an easy sticky tab fitment....not so!
A replacement part here in the UK is £280 and that's just for the plastic chrome bit!!!
So my next plan was to go the plasti-dip route - remove the trim and fill the small crunch mark ready for matt black paint or the plasti-dip. However, having had alittle look it's obvious that the black inner is clipped to the chrome which is also then clipped to the bumper in a way that fouls the rear aperture and rubber seal. The whole thing looks impossible to remove without damage without getting the bumper off first....
So I may have to work on it in situ, unless anybody has successfully removed the protector without damage?
