    I did a really stupid thing whilst cleaning my baby today. Got too close with the karcher and there must have been a chip in the paint on the tow hook cover and the paint just started coming off. By the time I realized this huge patch had been blasted off

    I'm gutted.
    Is the cheapest thing to take this to a paint shop and get them to spray it?

    Or does anyone know of a breakers yard maybe that would sell these off the same colour car?

    These come in primer from the dealer, you can’t order pre-painted.

    There are not many of these in the breakers, but occasionally they appear on eBay.

    Alternatively you can take the paint code to the dealer and they can order you a spray can.

    Personally I’d rub down with fine wet and dry, give it a plastic undercoat, followed by a couple of topcoat sprays and finished with a clearcoat..

    I'm worried now it will look different to the rest of the bumper

    What colour is the car - can’t actually tell from the pics.

    The alternative is to take it to a body shop, but they may insist of doing full bumper in order to ensure a colour match. It will also be quite expensive, as they will have to mix the paint to order.

    It's Daytona grey mate
    I might take your advise and try to spray it myself

    Ouch that’s unfortunate, pressure washers are ruthless I can’t use one because of my Vinyl wrap on my chrome would be straight off!
