We have this really narrow, community brick garage barely wide enough to park even this car. I was trying to come in through a short angle because someone had parked a large moving truck directly in front of my space.
Anyways, while going extremely slow, I felt that I couldn't go in. Uh oh I thought, I'm against the thing.
Sure enough, I have deep gouges on my front bumper. The gouges are black, meaning I've gone through every layer on my "pearl white" Sonata. Some are near the trim that curves around onto the side below the headlights, and some are closer to the fog lights.
I have some questions. Is this bumper made of plastic? I have heard that primer should go down before the paint only if these pieces are composed of metal.
What would you do? This car has been my "baby" and everyone makes fun of me for how nice I take care of it. Now I'm totally depressed. What are the proper steps to take care of this as professional as possible?
I went to the dealer and bought a paint pen. Should I wet sand the area first so everything's smooth?
