A clear bra installer left a long razor blade mark on the front bumper of my new 2013 wrx. I showed the damage to the owner and he offered to have it touched up or polished out; however, I insisted on a repaint of the entire bumper, which he agreed. Now I'm in the process of researching a good shop to do the repaint, but I'm wondering if I should even go this route.
I am worried about the paint color matching/blending issues on the front bumper, where the color is Ice Metallic Silver. Also, with a repaint, I will have to wait 30 days before having the clear bra put on again.
The areas circled in red is where I noticed the razor blade marks.
