You can hide it with touchup paint, but honestly, things like this happen. It sucks, but a rock can do the same.
Ture that I my just warped it down the roadYou can hide it with touchup paint, but honestly, things like this happen. It sucks, but a rock can do the same.
Thank you so much I will look into as I have unfinished road in my town so it could happen againTouch up paint will do a reasonable repair, or I have used this special paint Dr. ColorChip | that is an all-in-one solution, and it worked very well. Because it is red, make sure you get the exact right code and if you have paint made for it, you may need special tinting to match as red fades faster than other colors. Some specialized shops can do small area paint repair. When I worked for a dealership, they had a company who did airbrush work to repair new cars.
My Dad used to say it moves though the world, things will happen. The first damage to a new car is the worst! Even if you wrap a vehicle, the paint surface still needs to be perfect and have no gouges, as it will telegraph through the wrap.
Unfortunately, the paint and clear coat on our cars is very thin. Plastic parts when painted, a flex additive is added to the paint to allow it to bend. If you were going to do a repaint of the bumper, a good body shop will add that to the paint. For small areas and touch up, I am not sure how you would obtain that additive, but it is probably not needed.
To prevent further damage (once you touch it up) you can have clear paint protection film added to the front end and all the lights on the front end I did that when I bought my car and I think it helps. I know for sure it has prevented fogging of the lights.
Good luck with what ever you decide.
Yeah now someone did a hit a run my car taking the driver side mirror so I can drive it nowI can vouch for DrColorchip, I used it on my 91 CRX with great results. I did layer it on proud of the surface and then wet sanded it down flat. Only did the big ones as there were too many tiny holes to cover.
