    Default Sun Damage

    So I have been here is AZ with my 03 GT for a little over three years. I have started to notice on it, and the 06 Azera we bought last year the rear bumper is fading, and almost looks like its getting stress cracks. Any thoughts? Is it the sun? anyone know any fixes for it. Thanks.

    I think there is a way to repair plastic cracks. It's probably best if you have a body shop fix it. You're going to have to repaint it, and plastic parts should get a flex-agent in painting. I think there is a filler process, but slightly different from filling metal.

    It's not going to be an easy task to fix. Most professional shops won't even take on the task, and the dealer certainly wont. Most people will sell you a brand new bumper cover and new paint.

    Guess i should just start looking at body kits, and possibly plan a repaint on the whole thing. It is pushing 10 years old.
