Peeling Paint Refinish on 93 Deville Bumper Covers


Recommended Posts

My 93 Deville rear bumper cover was peeling badly on the left side.

I decided to remove it to strip and paint it.

Removal was easy  from inside the trunk and 6? 7/16 nuts to remove.

Did have to remove license plate/chrome surround bezel and take out 4 speed nuts to get to a couple  hidden nuts that secure the corner of the bumper cover.

I used compressed air and a razor blade to remove the old peeling paint from the whole piece.

It was funny looking black plastic  with no primer coat and sprayed base/clear  at the factory on the body.

Now stripped, primed, scuffed and ready for paint.

Removal was pretty easy.  Figured it would be easier than masking off the whole car.

Scraping/blowing off the paint on the bench and some compressed air and razor blade.

Hope the #8554  single stage matches.  Dont wanna blend into the 1/4 panel.

Finally painted the left bumper cover piece.

Gotta sand out a few fish eyes and a sag.  Darn rain!

Single stage paint with a little hardner and laq. thinner

That last shot is what it looked like when i bought the car.

Should of waited to post the before and after shots together.

Pretty easy fix tho.

Sun is out today in Syracuse for a few minutes so I should mount the  piece n place to compare the color match.

Its got a few pops and such in the paint finish so may sand and re-spray it.

check the pAINT 

Corner cover slipped on with no issue.  Used a air ratchet to tighten the nuts up.

Color match looks great!  I can see some pops and a sag in the paint but with this rainy weather!

All I have to do now is install the Tropical Cadillac dealer badge and a new Cadillac script on the right side
