    Paint Damage :-(

    Hey guys, i was washing the car today and notice somthing on the bumper, closer inspection resulted in tears





    Sorry about the picture size, was taken with my N80 a few mins ago

    Just wanted to know what the best thing to do is, my dad said to sand that area down and repaint over, but i was wondering whether the area will be able to flex again cracking the paint

    the paint will flex (to some degree) if you spray it again, any idea how it happened?

    From the way it has flaked, it looks like it's been damaged in the past and resprayed badly. You should be able to repaint it easily enough though.
