i know lot of other enthusiasts can spend everything on their stang but i just cant afford to so for this scratch is it ok if i just leave it? u cant see it unless u look really closely, and i think they should buff out.



i got them when installing my tail lights - they do look dope though!

also i noticed theres like a scratch on my right tail light but i cant tell if it came that way or not, but i guess it doesn't matter cus u cant see it unless u look super closely in certain light...either way i wouldn't want to take them off again anyways and risk scratching my car more lol.

u guys think dat azz look dope? i was looking at getting the gen5 tails as well but im very happy with this choice they look perfect to me. the gen5s look great on the 13s and 14s, but imo they seem kinda out of place on the 05-09 stangs

You can leave it or use some touch up paint. It's plastic bumper so rust is not a concern.

I'll prolly leave it for now and when spring comes do a detail and buff my car, i'm pretty much sure that they are gonna buff out.

IMO it's better to leave scratches because touch up jobs seem to make things look even worse. make your car go from a muscle car that has seen some action to an obvious 5$ patch job. I've been working with cars for many years and have yet to see a touch up job that looks passable lol. Just check out some of the "touch up tutorials" on youtube...ugh.

Unless those are stress cracks, where the paint cracked from the bumper being bent or flexed, try some scratch doctor, I had a few scratches on my door, and now you can't see them unless you look really close. For $8.00 bucks a bottle, it can't hurt to try........

is this a rubbing compound? I htried a rubbing compound from meguiars i think that was supposed to be really awesome and remove clear coat scratches from a previous vehicle...but it did nothing and I ended up having to get the car buffed.

I gave it a go but didnt do much...I think they are stress cracks but i dont know how they happened...do u think they could have came from the tail light installation? is a tail light heavy enough to cause a stress crfack on bumper?

if i just leave it will it be ok? dont have $ to repaint an entire bumper for this small barely visible crack.

Ah hell, just shine it up as good as you can, most ppl won't notice anyway, your just looking at it all the time... When I bought my GT I didn't see one scratch, till I waxed it, then I found a bunch........

Waxing always helps!!! Clay bar and full details help paint and keep a nice layer of protection
