Default Bumper Scuffs

Hi all,

I somehow managed to back my 2012 into a concrete post (must have had something to do with the combination of a dimly lit parking garage and sunglasses). I didn't hit it hard, but hard enough to scuff the grey plastic part of the bumper.
Any ideas on how I can clean it up?

Thanks,
Chris

If its just scuffed most of it should come out with a random orbital and some compound.

I've had similar scuffs and Meguires Ultimate Compound worked perfectly.

This.

But I'd recommend you start out with a polish before moving onto compound (just to see if it does the trick)


Of course, you'll have to polish once again if you have to resort to compounding..

Be careful though, buffer trails (holograms) are annoying..

With all the talk of polish, I wanted to make sure of something. The scratches aren't on the paint, but the lower part of the bumper.

Powerman - I see that for some reason you're driving a Charger (haha, just kidding), but the Mustang guys should know what I mean. The lower part of the bumper is still plastic, but kind of textured. I don't really know how to describe it.

It looks like it shouldn't be polished, because of the texture and it's not shiny, but I'm not an expert.

Chris, my apologies for giving wrong advice.
Took me a moment to realize you were talking about this portion:

Anyways, I'd imagine an easy fix would be to see if something like Chemical guys Back to Black would be able to mask it after every wash...

Otherwise, you may have to go to town with either one of these (which includes repainting the whole lower bumper with Bumper and Cladding Coat)
