    As above. The only other way is a bare metal respray but that will cost plenty. Or you could wet and dry the colour off and go down to the primer and then repaint. To save the cost rub down the panel yourself.

    well its a plastic bumper. i have been quoted to respray mine and they said they would have to reprime it so i guess for a silver bumper the price will be the same

    i would rather sand the panel myself anyway, at least then you know its been flattened back and not just sprayed over the shiny surface.

    if it's a front bumper your problem will be stone chips, you might see silver where chips are.
