How a bumper bar has changed over time
Bumper bar modifications and why?
Although many modifications have been made to bumper bars on vehicles over the years they still serve the same purpose. The bumper bar is there to minimise the damage to the other panels of our vehicles therefore keeping costs down. While still serving the same purpose it’s just a little smarter, optimising the positives by using different materials. Cosmetically changing from metal to plastic altered the appearance of vehicles greatly and started an entirely new look in the automotive industry. Although many car enthusiasts still choose to restore the golden oldies, otherwise knows as classics there are many that enter car shows with the newer more modern vehicles.
Changing from a metal bumper to plastic was a smart choice. Plastic bumper bars offer far more flexibility, not only protecting your vehicle but also the other vehicle involved. Repairs to plastic bumper bars are far more affordable and can be fixed for a fraction of the cost making it easy to maintain the appearance of your vehicle. Back in the day once the metal bumper bar was damaged it would be near impossible to get it back to original.
It has also been considered in relation to pedestrians and bike riders etc. The chance of a pedestrian being injured is far greater with a metal bumper bar compared to a plastic.
