Rear Bumper Protectors
 
Hi,

I'm looking for a rear bumper protector for a 2005 sedan. It seems they only make them for newer cars. Tempted to just order a random one and see if it fits.

Any of these exist for 2005's?

You could just go to a farm supply store and get a piece of stall mat. It would be really sturdy and really grippy too. You would just need to glue it on somehow.

What about getting a sheet of clear bra material and covering the top of the bumper with that? It would at least mitigate any possible scratches or damage during load in/out from the trunk.

Something I've been wanting to do to mine for awhile, I slept and now need to repaint the bumper before I do so.

I like the clear bra material idea. May do that once I get my euro rear bumper painted and installed.

I am going to measure the one from my Dodge Grand caravan when I get time. Eyeballing it, it looks to be a close fit. They are new on ebay for $25, my top bumper ither needs a repaint from to many scratches or one of these on it. Let us know if you find one that works, I will do the same.

yeah, just need someone like you to be our guinea pig [;)] i'm sure the general dimensions are similar. I wish i would have done something like that myself when my car was newer. I have a few scratches back there from loading different things in and out of the hatch.

I bought my car with those scratches, I may just have it repainted but I am just going to trace the Caravan pad onto some paper I have and see just how close it is this weekend. I dont mind being a guinea pig!!

Kinda wondering myself as I plan to get my euro rear bumper painted in about 2 weeks. Once done I would like to put a protector on the top to keep it from getting scratched.
