Oops , scrap on bumper

Question

Like a bell, I was lifting an axle into my boot, hand cramped and it slide down my rear bump! Def about a mm deep. Can this be detailed up or is it bye bye bumper?:( doesn't bother me as much as the second pic shows an existing scuff . That savagable?Posted ImagePosted Image

depemds how good you want it. Yes you could touch it in with a fine brush but bound to be visible. You could try a partial spray, but reds can be tough to feather in as the old paint is prone to fade. Only sure way is to do the whole lot 100-150 proffessionaly but not tough as a diy job.

Well park next to mine. I was giving son a lift and he has a ridiiiiculous drive / entrance. Took it an inch too wide and wheel slipped of kerb = supension sagging onto adjacent boulder = 5 parallel scrapes on underside of bumper. Pale gry plastic shows against storm blue a treat I can assure you. Front has some lovely stone chips and inside full of dog hair and the console is ripped out. Now how much of that am I going to sort out in 9 days. Not a lot. The weathers crap so Portsmouth won't be a show and shine. Plenty of time to get it proper tidy for Castle Coombe Jap fest in May :D

Just get a touch up stick for now a do it properly when it's a bit warmer.

You could get a touch up pen, run it in and the compound it or wet and dry then polish.

I would be tempted just to get chips away to look at it.
