Default How do I touchup paint my scratched bumper?

I own a 2001 Acura Cl and was recently rear ended. The paint on the bumper was chipped off pretty badly, down to the metal surface. What is the best and least expensive way to get my bumper looking new again without having to replace it? I greatly appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

My sister swears by nail-polish, but only if it's a little place not like the whole bumper, lol!

Buy the little bottles of paint from an auto shop. They are commonly found and come in various colors.

cheapest? contact the dealer to purchase a small tube of touch up paint. You can get the exact color of your car thru them. Sometimes the auto store only has generic colors, not the best match. They are about the size of a fat pen and under $10.

If the paint is chipped to the metal there is no quick fix that will look like nothing ever happened. Nothing you can buy in the store at a parts store will work. You will have to bond or prime the bumper and get it painted. Sorry.

I own a Honda and a very similar incident happened to me. I went to a Honda dealer and ordered a small touch up paint bottle, this will come with precise instructions and if you follow them you will get a perfect match. Do not buy an aftermarket product because they are never the exact same. The dealer takes the year of the vehicle into consideration and dilutes the color to match the affect of the sun on your paint. FYI shake the paint bottle very well!!!

First you need to sand with 600 grit sand paper then use primer then sand 600 grit again then a spot putty let dry and sand again with 1200 grit then paint let dry and sand again then simonize it.that's it unless the chip is deeper than i thought or just bring it to a shop and ask them how much to touch it up...Its really not that much.
