I some how managed to clip the entrance of my friends garage when i was pulling into it yesterday and scratch the paint on my front bumper. I want to get it fixed, what are my options?
If i buy that touch up paint how do i make it look as least obvious as possible?

Hmmm that's a bit big for using touch up paint without it being obvious methinks...

First thing to do is get some polish out and polish it. See how much it disappears from just doing that. You may be surprised.

lol a customer came to me once with a similar graze and bought some touch up paint. turned out horrible...

so if you cant polish it out then just get it sprayed, would be fairly cheap

if you're handy with a spray gun, you can do it yourself.. but that's too much damage to just brush on some touch-up paint. It will stand out like (add appropriate metaphor here)

I honestly can't see any amount of polishing doing much to help either. It may lessen the contrast a little of the lower third - but it looks to me like it's through the clear even there. Touch up guys (or similar will be your cheapest bet, as said - otherwise a respray
