So I had my car parked in my buddies drive way and he backed his Harley into my bumper. The exhaust pipe took a decent sized chip out of the bumper, about two quarters sized. He offered to pay to have it fixed, do I need to have it repainted or can I fix it another way???
I have a picture but the posting rules says I may not post attachment.

I figured that would be the only way to fix it, just checking. Sucks for him, i'm definitely not paying for it

I have friends that work in body repair and I've asked them in the past about touching up the type of damage that sounds similar to yours. The answer is that it will not be seamless so a conventional respray is the only way to get it to look good.

Around where I live the cost of a bumper re-spray if done by a quality shop is $500 or slightly less so it's pricey but not prohibitive.
