View Full Version : Painting bumper on a rainy day advice needed

03-18-2005, 01:59 PM
I unfortunately got rear-ended at the beginning of this month. The car is set to have a new bumper which will be painted next week. Well, it will be raining every day next week. Any harm or precautions?

I was hoping to clean and wash the car before dropping it off so that the shop can have a clean view of the paint to match. I have to drive 30 minutes in the rain before I get there and it will get dirty again. I'm think of rescheduling one week later when the weather is sunny and dry. My car is a garage queen and I want the job done right.

Should I give them my own washing/detailing stuff if they do wash the car first? Just being very paranoid.
