Help Paul’s car Posted on July 15, 2010 by admin Paint is actively peeling off the front bumper of my car and I have no clue why or what to do about it.Â It’s a Pontiac Vibe and I only see old cars on the roads with the same problem.Â Do you have any ideas, listeners?Â I appreciate the help!

I bet the paint on your bumper is falling prey to the Texas heat 🙁 Maybe it is time for a new paint job?
Just on the bumper? That’s no good. It’s not even the peak of summer yet.
Okay, here’s what my husband the car freak said: bumpers are made of plastic, for the most part the body is made of steel. Plastic bends a great deal more than steel, and because the paint is hard, it doesn’t tolerate bending well.(so it flakes off) That said, it could simply be a poor prep job.
That’s all I got, dude. Hope it helps.
That sounds like a great explanation. Thanks!
What do you think about something like a bumper cover? Too klassy?
I like the bumper cover.
