Hey guys owner for about two months. Just got back from class to clean my car and noticed someone must've scratched my back bumper.




It looks alot worse in person. Any ideas how to get it fixed? I don't mind paying someone to do it. I just think it looks pretty bad being black. Thanks for any advice guys.

The paint is alabaster silver if anyone couldn't tell.

Get touch up paint and then wet sand it down..never tried it but that's what I hear needs to be done.

I have the ASM touch up pen from the parts store and its a dead match on my bumper. You could try that first, if it does not meet your expectations you are going to have to pay a body shop to do it.

If you want it perfect then pay to have it done. If okay is good enough then take a shot with touch up paint.

Lots of youtube video's on this repair. I'd go with a mobile paint repair guy. A fraction of the cost to fix it as a body shop. Maybe even around $100. It's plastic so it won't rust. I'd fill it in will touch up paint via a toothpick then proceed with several stops after that. Including wet sanding etc. 2000 grit or so.
