check out the pic, got this nasty little dent on my rear bumper (don't ask how i got it, i'm still pissed at myself).

do you guys think it's worth getting it fixed? can something like that be fixed without replacing the entire bumper?

i know it's a rather small blemish, but it bugs the hell outta me every day i see it!

thanks!

good shop can take care of this, it will still show, but the major scars will be gone. they use colored buffing compounds, so usually it matches paint. i would NOT try the nail-polish touch up paint your self. in my experience it always looks heinous.
