Grey plastic below front bumper

The grey plastic below my front bumper has some scrapes in it. How can these be removed or at least cleaned up?

Re: Grey plastic below front bumper

well an easy fix would be get some matte black spray paint meant for plastic, remove the black piece from the metal bumper and spray it with a couple coats. makes it look new(er) again. hides the scratches.

Re: Grey plastic below front bumper

So I ended up taking a file and smoothing out the roughest spots and then going over the area with a propane torch getting the plastic just hot enough to smooth it out. It looks better but not perfect.

Re: Grey plastic below front bumper

You kinda did what I was going to suggest. Sand it down, put some heat to it to smooth it out. I would then go buy some black plastidip and spray it. If you don't like it just peel it off. Stuff is awesome.

Re: Grey plastic below front bumper

No need to sand, no need to spend $300. Go to your local hard ware store, pick up a
$5.86 can of Rustolem Trim and Bumper Paint

This product is the best stuff for renewal i have ever used. It's amazing. 2 cans did my ALL my black trim, my rockers, my hitch, my drive shafts, both my axles. Again. I LOVE this stuff. Just clean off the trim, wipe it down good with some mineral spirits and paint away! Good luck. Please post pictures when you are done with whatever you choose to do!

Re: Grey plastic below front bumper

Yes I did this to my plastics, look at my avatar picture, the trim is not wet at all, that's strictly the paint I used.
