Bumper touch up?

Hey All,

Not been a good few weeks. A couple of weeks ago the wife managed to back the SRT into a neighbours car. Didn't damage the other car at all, but took some paint off on the bumper around the right exhaust. As it turns out this was to be the least of my issues.

Two days ago while we were visiting a historic town (the kind with the high stone curbs) I was pulling into a park when I heard a bit of a scrape. Turns out the curbs are about 1cm higher than the bottom of the front bumper, but too low for the sensors to detect. Haven't ripped anything off, but have several decent scraps as a result.

Seeing as none of this damage is on metal, just wondering what my chances for repair are without replacing the entire bumpers?

Bumper touch up?

You shouldn't have to replace the bumpers. The scratches will either then be sanded out, filled with high build primer or flexible filler then re-sprayed. . Unless they are torn or punctured you shouldn't need replacements.

Thanks for that. Will have to get this looked at in the new year.
