    I know this happened to me too the first time i tried on the rear bumper....
    The thing is for very small dimensions its best to leave it as is..
    There has to be a fair bit of surface area to cover as well that way the paint finish will look really nice and clean.

    Now this brings me to another point. i noticed that the painted surface is a bit rough . i'm guessing it needs clear coat. Where do i get that?
    I saw the com-paint webpage for that. But dont really know which one is the clear coat. can anyone paste the exact link i should be looking at ...

    There are some scratches on my front bumper. Sadly medium grey is not listed in the colors available for FIAT :(

    ^^ Look for Clear Lacquer. That should be what you need.
  8. So it it possible to just use Lacquer over existing painted surface? just to get the shine?

    That is what I understand, but I am no expert in this field.

    My dear friend Prajith, I was reading your posts. Sad! Your gem got such a bad incident. Hope it is all clear now. Share the pics. Between, I will call you to grab your experience and knowledge :)

    @Cinju, Did you buy the com-paint for you TW? Pls tell me if you planning to do it. I also have very light scratches, after reading the posts I also feel to hide those.

    Thanks,
    Ganesh
