SEM’s standard operating procedure (SOP) for plastic tab repair shows you how to efficiently repair most automotive plastic tabs for bumpers, mirror housings, and more. 

Follow this 2 minute video to complete plastic tab repairs correctly every time.

Save Money & Turn More Hours by Repairing Tabs

Save several hours and up to $1,000 by repairing bumper tabs instead of replacing the bumper. The cost of a new bumper ranges anywhere from $100 to $1,000. Then, the technician has to prep, paint, and blend the color of the bumper to the fender to make it look original to the vehicle. This can take several hours and a lot of material. Repairing the bumper tab takes as little as five minutes and significantly reduces the cost of materials and labor.
