This repair option is really no different accuracy in the understanding of the majority of car owners, but it has its own special charm and appeal to young people, especially for one that adheres to motor sport subculture: the drifting and motorsports in General. It is unlikely which you will discover that car racing is often a hard contact sport, dings and cracks in the bumpers here business as usual, so in about professional racing circles, young athletes prefer to deal with breakdowns on their own.
Of course, there are several most popular ways to connect a few pieces of broken bumper (with tar, using the mesh with epoxy, and even through the use of a soldering iron), but we will consider a mechanical bond with the plastic clamps. So the process looked clearer, first watch the video in English (can turn on subtitles and translation):
Looked? The structure of the work clear? Then, you can start arranging systematically the most important stages of work.
For repair you will need:
2. Slim drill
4. Plastic cable ties

III. 6.00 minute video. Quilted bumper. There are two drawings retraction: parallel and criss-cross. The first is easier to do the second option better holds the pieces of the bumper.
The first type stigma: Parallel
In order to reach the inner side of the bumper “do-it handles” off the inner fender. The workflow shown on the 6.55 minute educational video. A couple of minutes and the bumper is ready!
Attention! Smooth the surface of the plastic clasp needs to be on top.
Tighten the ties must be strong, until until no audible clicks
