Are there any good options out there for protecting the top of the bumper from scratches when loading items?

Search the part number for better internet price (maybe $60).

Thank you for the links and the info! Looking for a black plastic one the rolls over the back of the bumper.  Doesn't seem to be one on the market yet.

looking for that too. i don't understand the ones that don't cover the edge; seems like insufficient coverage to me. still considering the clear one from ford, but it doesn't look rugged enough.

If it's that zag shield stuff they use on cellphones, it should be plenty tough.

This is the one I installed. It doesn't cover all of the bumper, but will hopefully protect it against most damage when I am load and unloading equipment.

Has anyone tried one of these for rear bumper protection? It is for the UK 5-door C-Max, 2010 to current model year, which looks a lot like the US C-Max.

You are going to hate me, it was a warm & sunny 70F when I went out to do some putting this afternoon. This weather is so weird, these cold fronts are completely missing NorCal/Sierras where we need it most.

I don't hate you, I was in Phoenix a week and an half ago.  Ever noticed during the winter when it's harm in the Southwest, It's Cold in the East. LOL :drop: :)

Ordered one today.... spoke the folks at travall and the say it will fit....  not cheap... 66 GBP  or about 110 bucks...

 

but  cheaper than a repainted bumper...

not bad service...  3 days to get from UK to my door step...

 

$66gbp

 

Looks nice... fairly hard plastic (durable)...  has adhesive tape along both long edges....but none on the short ends...

 

my only concern is the fitment on the right and left side.

 

if you notice.  in one pic  I have not applied any pressure to the edge  and it kind of sticks out a bit. and leaves a bit of a gap.

 

However, if I apply pressure (pic with hand)  you can see that it seems to line up and fit a bit better.

 

So  I have not stuck it on yet.  I think I'm going to wait until tomorrow.  I'll leave the bumper protector out in the sun tomorrow and get my heat gun up  to make the edges a bit more "compliant"

 

the grey  blends in well with the paint color.  but being as trim on the car is black.  it might look out of place on other car colors..

Marc,

 

Thanks for doing the homework on this option!

 

Have you put in on yet? If so, how does it fit once applied? I'm still interested in this one since I've already scratched up the bumper somewhat.
