    Hi matey,

    You could check out chips away or google simular scratch repair company, most of them are mobile and will be able to sort this for about £80...

    Make sure the smart repairer uses the correct paint. If it doesn't have an elasticiser in it, then a few months down the road the paint could crack as it won't flex with the plastic.
