Search Corolland!

By ChrisK, September 6, 2019


I am looking to purchase a 10th gen Corolla. I've seen two cars so far, and noticed that on both vehicles, both front and rear bumper covers seem to have been repainted--or at least having 2 layers of paint. If you were to look at the corner of the bumper cover, you can see a curved section where the upper layer of paint was applied.

However, after looking at some more vehicles, it seems that they ALL have this "rounded upper layer of paint". Is this just how they came from Toyota's factory? I know the 9th gen bumpers don't seem to have this "additional layer of paint". Asking if the kind members here can post pictures of their bumper cover to confirm my suspicion.

Thanks in advance!

On my '99  the beige paint, at least, was defnitely different on the bumper covers than on the rest of the car — new from the factory with some of the protective material still attached.

Are we sure it is another layer of paint, or is it a protective coating (very popular nowadays) applied by owner or wrap shop.
