With a few household items, some time and patience you can build your very own car bumper guard. The idea to build a bumper guard came to me one Sunday as I cleaned out my garage. I had scraps of carpet all over the place and that got me thinking. Why not use the remnant carpet pieces to build my very own front and rear bumper guards. So I proceeded to cut and measure carpet. I decided that my bumper guard would extend 40” inches wide and 12” inches tall. After cutting out the bumper guard shape I punched out two holes along the top and retrofitted an elastic bungee cord. With my bumper guard all complete I proceeded to attach it inside my trunk. Bumper guard project complete!!!
