Bumpers protect the front and rear of the vehicle from minor impact. Their design varies, depending mostly on when the vehicle was built. Prior to the early 1970s bumpers were chrome plated slabs of metal on brackets that were bolted to the vehicle. A combination of government standards and styling changes aimed at making vehicles more aerodynamic led to the bumpers we have today: plastic covers over reinforcements made of metal, composite, or plastic.

Rigid chromed steel bumpers bear the scars of every stone, piece of road debris, other bumpers, parking lot barriers, and shopping carts that have ever impacted them. Once the chrome chips away the underlying metal is exposed to the elements that can quickly cause rust and peeling of the remaining chrome. The dents can be banged out and the bumper straightened and re-chromed, but this can be very time consuming not to mention very expensive.

Most new vehicles feature painted bumper covers made of various types of thermoplastics, which provide a degree of flexibility that in theory enables the cover to spring back from a minor impact. In reality however, even slight contact can leave the bumper with unsightly cracks and abrasions. This damage can sometimes be repaired, but to properly restore the vehicle’s appearance, replacement of the cover is generally the best course of action.

Modern bumpers can be very complex assemblies. The underlying supporting structure can include absorbers and reinforcement bars, and besides the bumper cover the exterior may include impact strips, moldings, valance panels, inserts, and spoilers, or a combination thereof. Any of these components can be damaged in even a minor collision and they generally cannot be repaired. Because of their susceptibility to damage, searching for used parts is a fruitless endeavor, and choosing cheap parts may result in panels that look and fit poorly.

Luckily you don’t have to spend a lot to get superior quality. No matter what style of bumper you have we can bring your car or truck back to its former glory. If you’re restoring a classic or muscle car we can supply you with bumpers die-stamped from the highest quality steel and chrome plated using a show-quality plating process. And we have everything you need to install those bumpers including brackets and hardware, bumper bolts and bumper guards.

If you’re repairing a late model crash damaged daily driver, we have the parts you need from suppliers that specialize in providing original equipment quality body parts at less than original equipment prices. You get the same quality parts that you’d get at the dealer (that is, providing the dealer has the part) without the dealer price. These parts will look and fit just like the parts your vehicle came with, so your car or truck looks like new.

    Chrome Bumpers: The Good Old Days When Bumpers Were Metal
    Throughout the history of the automobile, metal bumpers with chrome-plated finish have been used as much for visual expression as they have for function. Go to any classic car show, and you're bound to hear at least one conversation covering the subject of how chrome bumpers are closely tied to "the good old days", with any given style representing the beginning or end of any individual's golden era of choice. In this article, we'll take a brief look at the history of chrome bumpers, how government regulations affected designs, and why chrome bumpers ultimately faded away.

    How Do I Repair Or Replace My Plastic Painted Bumper?
    The purpose of automobile bumpers is to protect functional and cosmetic areas of the car from damage during low-speed impacts. For many decades, bumpers were heavy chrome-plated steel bars bolted onto a vehicle's front and rear. Today's vehicles still have an actual metal bumper beam, but it's structural only and lighter in weight. A plastic piece known as a bumper cover fits over that structural beam, and is painted to provide a seamless look on the front or rear of a vehicle.
