Bumper Repair - My Actifit Report Card: July 15 2021
I did an early morning walk through downtown Visalia for 4500 steps, but the real workout was pushing out the huge dent on my van’s bumper.
I told my mom that I was going to use boiling water to push the dent out, and she had her doubts, so I had her help me.
I wasn’t getting anywhere with pouring the water over the dent, and then trying to push the dent out, so I had my mom pour the water over the dent while I pushed on the dent.
It took 5 pots of boiling water to get the bumper back to 85% of it’s original shape.
The smaller dent in front of bumper must of been the impact spot.
I need to remove the light to get the damaged bumper married to fender, but I feel good about the repair.
Here is what the bumper looked like when I realized it had been hit by another car.
and this is what my arm looks like after the wrestling match with the big grey piece of plastic.
Before the bumper repair, I mowed my mom’s lawns and did yard cleanup for 6500 steps.
Thank you for the support.
