  1. Effin' pickup driver reversed onto the rear bumper while I was parked 😡😡😡

    Luckily the damage is minor, I'm on two minds whether or not to get the bumper repainted or leave it as it is

      Missing out on activity on the forum these days as I'm preoccupied with family matters. Sorry to see the damage, but that's not a big deal IMHO. Just touch it up and don't bother painting the entire bumper. Painting over the original paint for a scratch as small as this is just not worth it. 

      I'm not sure if my eyes are deceiving me, but I don't see any exposed metal. When clear coat is scratched, it does turn white or an opaque colour. So might be that? 

      Since you've already touched it up, now use a light cut and polish to remove the roughness of the touch up paint. Do the same for the bumper as well. This will minimise the "untidy" appearance of the touch up paint because it will cut down the paint to the level of the paint of the car.

      @K.o.N.o.S It was a guesstimate, they said the cost could be higher... and yes, the damage cannot be seen in the first glance 

      @trinity called UNIMO on the accident site with the pickup driver, they guesstimated it could be around 8k so the got the pickup driver to cough up 8k and let him go. Called the insurance (c******o) too, they paid 9k on the spot and told me to inform them if the repaint costs more than that... all in all I'd incur no monetary loss if I go through the full paint route

      @Davy I didn't see any exposed metal either but I had some touch up paint in hand so covered it up lest there be rust spots somehow in the future

      OMG! I know that awful feeling! Better to go for a place with a painting booth, but if you are closer to Kurunegala, I can suggest best place I know.
