Re: Kick Plates(side doors) & Scuff plates(back door) help


We got our side scuffs thrown in as part of our deal - but had to pay a bit for the rear one - guess its a bit more expensive than other bits?

Anyway - well worth it in my opinion - look awesome if nothing else. But they will definitely protect the car (and its resale value).

I wanted to ask if anyone was aware of a second rear scuff plate - one that actually protected the door frame rather than the back bumper? When we ordered the rear plate I actually had in my mind thats what I was ordering. The previous owner had already made a few scratches.

While I was pleasantly surprised by the rear one - its easy to cover up the "inside" scratches rather than ones on the bumper - I would love to have something to protect the door frame at the bottom as well.

Michael,

There isn't a scuff plate per say for the tailgate bottom edge.

But you can grab the door edge protector as shown HERE and run it along the bottom edge of the tailgate and am sure it'll do the job.

A question reference the rear scuff plate, I understand that stainless plate sits on top of the (horizontal bumper) boot area, however has anything been produced that drapes/fits over the vertical portion of the rear bumper? Thinking along the lines of my dog or a pram hitting the paint (already has a few bad dings in it). Or would you all say this isnt required? (nil real experience in prams yet! ) emoticon

Dave,

What you need is called a Bumper Bib emoticon

That's a fancy solution of course, the more practical solution is to have a piece of carpet and lay it out across the bumper for the dog to climb. It's very rare that the vertical area of the bumper gets scratched, as the traffic seems to hit the upper horizontal area all the time.

Cheers mate,(prompt and accurate as usual!)
think I will run with the metal sill though, cos even though I MAY remember to drop the Bumper Bib occasionally, the Boss never will with a handful of shopping and a squirming baby! Looks better too....but thats NOT why I want it haha
order hopefully imminent Jalal...secreting funds at the moment!
Cheers
