Default Scratches on rear plastic bumper

Greetings,

The bumper on my 2003 TL-S was scratched recently. It's plastic, of course,
and I'm somewhat confused as to how to go about touching it up. Any
suggestions? I already have the correct paint from the dealership, but it
seems to me there should be some type of preparation done.

I'd appreciate your input.

Thank you.

JudyM

I just got my bumper fixed at my local car restoration shop. Bumpers
require a special paint specifically for plastic bumpers, rather than metal
auto bodies. They also require prep. I can not even see where the
scratches are on mine now.

Good luck with your scratches,

How badly scratched? If just a few lines, you can just use touch-up paint
from the dealer.

As far as surface prep goes, just use some Windex and a clean cloth, then
let it dry for a minute.

Good morning!

I had some work needed on the right side bumper where it meets the metal,
and there had to be some buff out on the rear portion, where it came in
contact with a stucco wall. no physical damage, but some scrapes with the
stucco pits. All in all, a job well done.
