Unhappy Back Bumper BIG Scuff and loss of paintwork... How much??

Hi

My back bumper has a huge scuff on it, and also some scratches due to someone clipping it from behind.

everytime i look at my car i now feel sick i have took some photos of the damage, i was just wondering if anyone could give me some idea of what it would cost to have it sprayed? there are no dents or any other damage.







Thanks

If there's no damage and it's just the paint work I can't imagine it'd be very expensive at all

Thanks, i was thinking it would cost around 80 - 100 to be honest.. did they have to re-spray your whole back bumper?

I had a scuff on the lower ridge, next to the number plate from where i reversed into a very jagged 1980's style concrete bollard. Left some nasty gauges out my paintwork that had to be sanded/filled then sprayed by a bodyshop. They charged me 50, and wasn't the greatest work in the world. Pretty shoddy tbh.

But gives you something else to compare it to.

No, he did just a block where the paint had come off from the number plate edge to the edge of the bumper so it didn't look any different

I have repared my own front bumper with rattle cans with suprisingly good reasults but you need to have the confidence I had pretty much convinced myself if i messed it up i would invest 200 in a brand new painted bumper but i managed to do it with some paint from halfords. bout 50 worth of stuff alltogether including sand paper paint lacqure and tape oh and polishes n stuffs, to do it myself although it has taken about 2-3 month to do it and im still not finnished :P
