Hey guys, new to these forums. There is some cracked paint on the top part of my bumper by license plate on my 02 mustang. Not really scratches just cracks. I did hand wax my whole car. Is there any way you guys know of to fix this?

That looks like stress cracks the only way to fix it is to have them sanded out and repainted I wouldn't recommend it unless you have done plastic repairs before

I had some similar issues on my bumpers and got them worked on.

Yeah at a shop you would pay to have the bumper taken off and put back on, have it repaired and have it painted

Re: Cracked paint??

Yeah.. Gonna have to sand through the clear and put a little filler and smooth it out. Then sand the filler down with 600 after it's dry. Then sand the whole piece down with 800 and a soft block. Just be careful about pushing with fingertips because it'll cause streaks in the paint. then spray your color. You're gonna want to put an extra coat or two on the front bumper because it takes more abuse.. And clear it with a lot of coats of clear. Then if you have any bubbles or impurities you can always come back with 2000 grit to sand errors out of clear coat and then hit it with a multi-stage buffing system.

It's a pretty easy process..
