Hello, I have a 2009 Vibe GT and I need some advice on restoring the front bumper of marks/damage. The bumper is completely covered small white marks from 100k miles of use. It looks like the clear coat is damaged because there is very small cracks in some of the bigger marks. They are littered all over the entire bumper and the front of the hood. I've tried using a bit of Turtle Wax car rubbing compound on a small section, but found that it leaves it noticeably dull and only slightly improves the marks. I didn't continue to use rubbing compound on the whole bumper because I don't want to do more harm than good. If anyone has this same problem can you please help me out? Should I continue with phases of rubbing compound then wax to restore the shine? I want to avoid repainting the bumper if at all possible, however, I will understand if that's my only option.
Check out the pic to see exactly what the problem is. It just looks horrible out in the sun because it sticks out so much (to me at least lol). That's is right after a wash, and I waxed it a week ago.
Thanks in advance!
