I would recommend repainting the whole bumper, & pay them a little extra to fix any rock chips that may be on the bumper. Probably about 500. Hopefully there's a shop around you that does high quality work. Good luck!

Could be an opportunity for a different style bumper.

Thanks everyone, @hetfield03, I currently have the ZL1 fascia on now.

Should I put anything over the scratches to prevent further paint chipping?

Would the dealer or local shop be best bet?

Thanks

If you had the mail slot bumper you would have been fine, top GM engineers designed it to deflect garage doors.
