Re: Replacing Scenic front grille on damaged bumper

Hi there and welcome.

Plastic is a very forgiving and malleable material.

Your partner will need access to a heatgun, or at least a hairdrier.

I enclose a couple of pics of a before & after job I did on a Seat Leon a year ago, as an illustration of what's possible.

Can you enclose a pic or 2?

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