Thumbs down Scratch in paint

I can't even guess what caused this scratch and I'm not sure if it was caused when the paint was wet. I had my front bumper repainted recently from a few scratches but the scratches were not in this spot. When I picked the car up it was raining so that could have kept them hidden then and I just recently gave the car a good wash and that is when I saw this.

That looks like it's been polished or cleared over. Maybe they scratched to basecoat and cleared over the scratch during the painting.

took it to the body shop and they said it was their fault so I'm scheduled to bring it in a week to be fixed on them.

That's the way a business should be ran. Good to hear they are backing up their work.

Agreed., Should've never left the shop like that. But at least they're making it right, more than most places do these days.

Yea thats true, I just must have missed it with all the rain and while they were repainting the bumper I had them install the heritage grill so I was probably more focused on that too.
