before you try any thing get a rag and some acetone. I know it worked when i ran my half ton into a green steel gate. if it works once you get the paint from the pole whiped off then use soap and water to wash the acetone off so it doesnt eat the paint on the car.

I havent done much painting. hopefully some one else can come along and help. I know on a good paint job you compleatly sand the old paint off. then aply one layer of primer then it has 2 good coats paint, then wet sand it, cut and buff, then wash and hand dry, then clear coat, then a cut and buff on the clear coat with a good hand wash and wax...

depending on the car if you can lay the paint right just a good smooth coat of paint would probly be fine for the bumper. what kind of car does your g/f have?

if its a plastic bumper you have to add a flex agent so when the bumper moves the paint doesn't pop off
