Not had my treasured NHB 2.2 EX a week & some a-hole has hit the bumper………A WEEK!!!!!

Can you believe how damn annoyed i was when, showing a client my new pride & joy, i discovered a scrape on the rear bumper!!!! I ask you, A WEEK !!! SERIOUSLY!!! It is quite small but i hoped for more than 5 days before the 1st war wound. Gonna give Revive! a try, they come highly recomended by EVO magazine. Fingers crossed.

My passenger door got dented after 3 days!!! Really long and deep, took a very experienced guy nearly 3 hours to pull and push it out. Absolutly gutted.

If the scrape hasn't gone through right through the paint i reckon you could polish it out. Ive used G6 rapid compound (link below) before on my old focus to get rid of small scratches and scrapes. Not used it on my civic yet but would go careful with the soft paint.

Thanks for the tip mate, but it's right through to the black plastic of the bumper !!
