So I have a couple small areas on front bumper where previous owner looks like he scraped a cement wall in a parking structure. Plastic so can easily sand down to make it smooth and fill in the scratches as needed.

I was wondering if anyone has had luck with the aerosol paint kits that have the primer /base coat/clearcoat in aerosol cans? What I'm concerned about is color matching.

I was looking at the www.automotivetouchup.com products. Anyone use them or can recommend something similar?

Try it first on a sheet of paper to have an idea of how the paint is coming out of the can. Also, it is ideal to apply a thin coat first.
Usually if a bumper is repainted by a professional they add a flex additive to the paint to keep it from cracking/lifting. I don’t think an aerosol spray wud have that additive. So the paint just may crack after a while
