    Hey all,
    I have light scratches on mainly my bumpers and bumper trim, Was going to invest in one of the Halfords Body repair kits, But I also have some, TurtleWax Color Magic PLus, with a chip stick, I also have T cut, I have attached some pics, so you can all see what I mean, Any other suggestions are best buys, would be great, basically I want to achieve a good quality consistent finish through out.
    Many Thanks In advance
    JJ

    washing the car before taking pics would have been better, but hey.
    a trip to a paint shop is needed for some minor prep and painting
    machine polishing won,t sort the bumpers scuffs and scrapes

    The bump strips can be unclipped easily, and the door mirror cover can be taken off (by the four posidrive screws behind the mirror glass)

    I'd either get another set of bump strips and replace the scuffed ones, or take the lot off and give them a coat of satin black.

    The mirror cover would benefit from a bit of spray, should be easy enough to do
