View Full Version : bumper tabs

I assume this would work on civic 's as I did this to my RSX
so I had a tab on the bumper rip and sag/ pop out .....

easyish fix....
you will need
1. heat gun.
2. 1''x1'' malleable mesh
3. broken tab from bumper or scrap plastic from under side of bumper

remove bumper

register the mesh over damaged area, mark the location of the hole for the tab.

puncture mesh for push tab/ bolt

melt scrap plastic over mesh registered on the bumper.

mold in to proper form
let dry , sand down if ugly and not smooth on top.

think, no one can see this and its a lot cheaper than a new bumper....

thanks to crsx and type-spaze

Not everyone on here learns by reading words so a suggestion is that pics would help.
