x2 on this. Unless OP is asking about the scratches above the big one.

The big one there is no paint to buff.

I am referring to the big one. My grand father in law has a used car dealership, and he is gonna take a look at it for me. He suggested we try out the touch-up to see how it looks and go from there. I suppose we will need to start with a primer coat then.

Its down to the plastic. Gonna have to put enough paint to make it level as well.

Best of luck to you interested how it turns out.

I started working on the area today. I polished with Meguiar's ScratchX 2.0 to get the red paint and the smaller scratches off.

Then, I got some of the two stage paint for $25 total directly from Toyota for the major scratch. According to the dealership, the second stage is clear with the metal flake. I got all of that applied, and I think it turned out really well.

Even in direct light it matches perfectly as best I can tell. The only thing is that it doesn't have quite the same sheen to it. I just have to wait 3 days to polish the area and then another 30 to wax it. I think that will make the sheen match nicely.

Check out the most recent pictures that I posted and let me know what you think. I gave the 2 stage, Toyota, brush-on touch up paint a try. I think it turned out really well for the $25 it cost me.

Looks pretty damn good. Can see some distortion but I could live with that.

I agree, looks good enough for where the damage is. The true test is how well the paint ďsticksĒ over time. Primer for plastic bumpers allow for more flex before cracking and flaking off.

Itís plastic and is venerable to getting abuse. Donít be concerned. Mine has been nicked too.
