A buff will help but if it's to paint only a full repainting of the part will fix it, bumpers normally run about $300 for a paint job.

If the car got keyed and it took off paint you have to fully repaint it to fix it. Happened to my civic at work. Painting your whole car will be very expensive if you want it done right.

Over a grand at least. You can get cheaper but it won't be a base coat clear coat.

If you find a place that repaints the entire car quality for only 1k let me know. You're talking 3-6k depending on the quality.

Have you made any enemies lately? What stops this person from keying your car again?
