    Angry bubbling paint on mk 5 bumper

    just noticed that my back bumper is bubbling it looks like water splashes but it aint wiping off!!!

    have you got any pictures of the affected area?
    It might be that the paint hasn't keyed properly to the bumper when it was sprayed. I cant see how it could have been the pressure washers, unless they are steam cleaners, paint should be tough enough to withstand their temperatures though

    not usually no, though paint can flake off a bumper, but I've only really seen that on older cars, and usually french ones. For the most part its usually down to a scuff or deep scratch
