I got a few fresh scratches in my rear bumper. they go all the way thru the paint. what is the best way to fix these? is touch up paint from the dealer the best alternative to a new bumper? if so, any secrets to applying this? thanks

That Langka stuff sounds like the same thing as using a clay bar.

Clay Bars flatten the bulge caused when applying touch up paint?

Actually I'm thinking of trying this Langka stuff myself for a deep scratch I have on my front bumper. I just want to find a place I can buy it locally.
The touch up paint is like 5 bucks, depending how specific your color is, you can get touch up paint at any auto parts store. I use black so there is no matching issues.
