Need your help guys ... pretty, pretty, pretty please :)

Can't believe I've done this ... it's not serious but I'd appreciate some advice on the sedona.

The scene:
A french connection uk awful day (broken up with partner, serious hissy fitting taking place), tidal waves of tears, angry (strike that) bloody raging!!! the weather was st michael'ing it down, i shouldn't have been driving, the magic mirror was disconnected (don't ask why! something to do with the constant bleeping noise to which I took quick offence to in the split second of a moment - how I wish I had of left it alone now - probably due to the fact that I looked like a bloodshot red eyed demoness - not a pretty sight!)

Anyway (funny moment now) I backed the sedona into a wall and scraped the offside rear corner bumper.
I've bought got some t-cut and a touch up stick. How do I go about this? (not done it before). Already rubbed some t-cut in and removed the bits of wall away LoL ... what a silly mare!

Sorry to sound daft ... but don't want to make the bumper any worse. How many coats of touch up do i apply? do I rub down between coats? do I seal it afterwards? if i do, what with?

Cheers guys x
Fiona :blush:

Curlywurlygirl, you may be better off going to one of the many new dent repairers that are around these days.

At least get a quote from them, they sorted the bumper out on my Kia which had a similar sounding scratch to yours very efficiently, but this was before I bought it from the garage so don't know how much they charged.

I got a quote for another ding though on another car and that was £50

At least you've only done it with a series of negatives going on in your head.


My wife would do the same trick in a perfectly normal state of mind!!. Hate to think what she'd do in a strop :haha: .

I'd have saved your money with the T-Cut etc and put it towards a paintless dent removal specialist. Although the job title doesn't suggest it, most of these blokes can do paint repairs.

Hello Fiona,

And I thought I was the only one having a s*it few weeks,
sorry to hear about you.

Enough of me, there is an other alternitive for your bumper---
use some stick on bumper corner scuff pads to cover your - achm - efforts.

I've seen them on sale either on this forum or e-bay.

10 min', some carefull positioning and your done, fiver each I think.
WARNING!, one or two customers thought they looked a little naff.

By the way, I thought you swore by your magic mirror.

LoL Seacam ...

Yes, I do usually swear by (and recently at) my magic mirror - if only it talked to me other than its reversing capabilities!

Thanks for the advice guys and gals, appreciate it as always x
