In Colour – Painting the Rear Bumper of the 1995 BMW 850CSi

The rear bumper of the 1995 BMW 850CSi has been in the Bridge Classic Cars in-house paint shop for the team to refinish it in matching Oxford Green to the rest of the stunning 1990s GT car.

Alan worked on getting the bumpers completely cleaned down and prepared to go into the booth where the team have paint matched them to the correct Oxford Green paint to match the exterior of the car.

The car looks absolutely incredible in dark green so these will just add to that after being refinished by the team.

Stripped Back – Preparing and Priming the Rear Bumper of the 1995 BMW 850CSi

The rear bumper of the 1995 BMW 850CSi has been taken off the car and is being prepared by the in-house restoration team in the Bridge Classic Cars paint and body shop.

Mauro has been carefully stripping, sanding and cleaning up the bumper of the 1990s GT car for the team in the paint shop to prime it. The clear coat on the piece was flaking and the colour had begun to change so the team are refinishing it to the same colour as the body thanks to our state of the art paint scanner.

After Mauro had finished preparing the bumper, it was taken into the paint booth where our painter Alan shot the piece in plastic primer and then high build primer to finish.
