    Cracked paint help!

    I was slowly backing out of my work parking spot when this 16-17 year old kid in a white van plows right across my back bumper (he didnt even slow down)

    Now Ive got scratches and paint cracks about 6-8" wide across my rear bumper...

    Is there anyway to fix this other then taking it to a shop? I have plenty of "tool resources" here at the shop and touch up paint but dont want to make matters any worse... what should I do?

    Take it to a shop unless you have auto paint experience

    Yes indeed he should be... At first he stopped, then when I got out to assess the damage he took off

    And you didnt chase his ass down? I know I would have. Thats hit and run dude-pretty serious offense. What a POS that guy was. You know he is going to avoid driving by your shop/work from now on. **also-if the paint is cracked-there is no hope. You need your bumper sanded,primed with flexible primer then painted.
