    tiny crack in my turbo bumper

    I just noticed a crack in my bumper where the thr front grille is proboly due to hitting the curb pretty hard with the lip causing pressure to crack part of the bumper where the lip is connected...barely noticeable but its buggin me do I have to get the whole bumper replaced to fix it?

     

    pic is not my car or lip but it gives a good pic of the bumper.  THe green is about where the crack is.it doesnt run all the way through.

    Go to a hobby shop and get that very thin liquid "welding" adhesive for plastics. It's even less viscous than water. Capillary action will draw the stuff into the crack like magic. Use a hypodermic syringe to get the stuff exactly onto the crack. Wipe off excess fast. Try inconspicuous area to make sure it doesn't immediately ruin paint. It's the same thin-liquid stuff that works on acrylic plastic and ABS. I dunno. That's what I'd try.

    Glad to help. I hope it works (chances are very good it's a compatible plastic). Smiley
