(i'm new this this forum, so if this isn't the right place to post this, I apologize beforehand)

So yesterday, I noticed that the car parked behind me hit my 2014 Honda CR-V rear bumper; it caused slight damage to the bumper and nothing to their car. I was pretty bummed as I just bought the car less than 2 weeks ago. I was wondering if there is anything i can do, to fill in the dent and the color scratch the car left on my bumper ?

the dent (the discoloring black is my dad trying to fix it, he didn't do a very good job); It's about .7 of an inch and it's somewhat dented where the white part area is)

The scratch, no dents whatsoever, scratch feels smooth, so probably just on the surface but i don't know how to get rid of it

Any help and advice is greatly appreciated!

Should I go visit Autozone or a body workshop?

(Also, the pics are turned sideways, sorry)

Have you tried buffing it out. Does suck that's it's on a new CRV, but over time you'll forget about it!

Once that bumper material is scratched, it stays scratched. My neighbor dragged his suitcase over my bumper and now it looks like hell. I've tried everything and I can't make it go away. Sorry.

That really looks like a lot of work and time spent. IMO the initial application and then 2-3 times per year would be great for someone with a lot of extra time on their hands. However, ot does look good.

Looked at the video again and wondered why they didn't raise the deck lid? Looks like it could be scratched with the brush.
