Someone hit my lude, Advice wanted

Hey guys i have a problem and this is what happened. I walked outta work one day to find that my car had been hit by some asshole, and this had to have happened in the last two days so anyway i had a few questions and i need any answers i can get because i cant go based off what i think entirely at this point just yet so here are some pics and the questions

Should i get a full respray of the bumper?

If i get a full respray can they put the prelude letters back on correctly without a problem? (if anyone knows the answer to that)

Is it worth getting a full respray or can a touch up make it look almost 100%?


it also looks like one of the scratches is brushed across.


thanks guys any advice helps.

The proper way would be repaint the bumper, or at least the section, but to do it right they would need to blend further into the other panels. It also looks like your bumper might be pushed out a little bit, and I believe thats a ureathane bumper, if so it can be heated and molded back. Check with some local shops and see what prices they give you, and the rest of us can offer more advice at that point.

for a proper look your gonna have to blend it in. As said above, check with local shops and get their opinions as well.

Go around the neighbourhood and see if anyone has silver paint on their car, when u find it, make sure you break their kneecaps!!! btw...a bumper without the prelude lettering looks better IMO
