Buick Riviera bumper fillers are commonly known as mere enhancements for your car. Placed between the bumper and the car body, bumper fillers can either be designed as one whole panel or divided into smaller parts. But bumper fillers can also be functional. They can prevent dirt and moisture from affecting your bumper panels by sealing the gap between the grille and bumper. Buick Riviera bumper fillers are usually made of metal or plastic. Obviously, if your bumper is metal, you'd have to get a metal bumper filler to match it perfectly. Same thing applies to plastic bumpers. So if you wish to boost the appeal of your Buick Riviera and at the same time protect your car from severe damage, installing bumper fillers can easily do the trick.
Can a front bumper filler be used for the rear bumper of a Buick Riviera?
Can a front bumper filler be used for the rear bumper of a Buick Riviera?Answer: The front and rear bumper of a Buick Riviera have different angles and curves, so a bumper filler for the front of the vehicle cannot be substituted for the filler of the rear bumper. Original-equipment manufacturers do not make bumper fillers that can be used to seal gaps between the grille and the rest of the front bumper assembly as well as for the open spaces on the rear bumper. Besides, a bumper filler that is forced on either bumper will only look out of place, thus affecting the aesthetic appeal of the entire bumper.
How can a bumper filler enhance the appearance of a Buick Riviera's front bumper? Answer: A bumper filler serves as a completer of the appearance of a Buick Riviera's bumper. Without this filler, there will be gaps between the grille and the rest of the front bumper assembly. These gaps will make the engine bay susceptible to debris, and the metal parts will be more prone to corrosive substances. Any car without a bumper filler installed will have something visually missing on the front bumper area, and it will appear that the grille assembly is not completely sealed or secured. The void where the bumper filler is installed must be filled in order to provide a smooth transition between the grille area and the surrounding front bumper surfaces.
Can a plastic bumper filler be matched with a metal bumper? Answer: Technically, a plastic bumper filler can take the place of a metal bumper filler as long as the color of the former will blend well with the rest of the front bumper. It is difficult to distinguish between a metal and plastic filler once they have been painted, much more once they have been installed to seal grille-bumper gaps. The choice is basically on the car owner whether he or she can withstand the thought of having a different bumper filler material from the rest of the front bumper.
