Okay, so I did the stupid thing of trying to drive and park in a hilly area -____-, and i wasn't paying attention. I sorta like hit the curb, and scractched the paint off the bottom of my ground effects bumper like right in front. You can't see it, but i know where it is and if i lay on the ground i can see like the 2 spots, they are like identical and symetrical on both sides. What should i do?, Should i wax it? then wash? Should i wait for touch up paint then wash it? The 2 spots are like completely scractched off, all i see is like a rusty color

thnx for ur help

its hard to tell you without seeing the scratch......is it down to the primer??? I would assume it is, so your best bet is to wash it, then use some touch-up paint. Let that dry and then wax over it. - t

Better car care has a how to repair a scratch article which is very informative. I used the step by step process when I had been a victim of a hit and run on my front bumper. Came out pretty good a lot less noticable. I have pics of before and after in my sig its the last page.
Hope this helps.
