Have checked my database, and there are a lot of possibilities - is the damaged area the same colour as the rest of the car, or is it a grey plastic (i.e. rubbing strip) colour?

As previously mentioned, the plate on the drivers 'b' pillar should indicate this - strange Renault wouldn't know that?

A plasticiser wouldn't normally be needed if the area is prepped properly, and a normal primer is used beforehand. Plasticisers would normally be used if you were painting directly onto the plastic (without using a primer).

If you can answer my first question, and provide the code (i.e. MV 632), then I may be able to give you a paint code for the relevant part of your bumper (it will help narrow the search in any case).

Hope that helps,


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
