I have a pretty bad scratch on the part of the front bumper that is below the fog lamp where the bumper and right fender meet. I must of rubbed up against something while parallel parking or something. Anyway, what do I need to do to repair it. You can see white, so it must be all the way through the clearcoat and paint. Can I do it myself? And if it has to be done at a body shop, what will be the damage to my checkbook? Should I get my insurance involved?

Suggestions are greatly appreciated. I can provide a picture of the scratched area to better understand the situation.

Probably not worth an insurance claim. You can get your own touch up kit at www.paintscratch.com - they include everything you need with instructions. Try that first and see if it looks ok. If not you can probably get it fixed and repainted for a few hundred bucks at a body shop.

I"m sure you can go to your Ford dealership and have them mix you up a bottle of your paint code. When they painted my monochrome grille they gave me a bottle of the paint to match my car. For any touchups I had to do.

Too late. I ordered the touch up kit. I will try that first. I just can't stand looking at that big ugly scratch on my beautiful car. :banghead:
