    I have a fairly deep scratch on the white bumper of my MH. What is the best way to tackle it. Can you by special fillers for plastics? Do you rub down with wet & dry emery paper and spray with normal cellulosic paints?:winky:

    if the bumper is definately plastic there are special fillers for this and primers, after which you can use normal body paint, however if it is glass fibre you will be able to use the usual body filler, primer and paint, as an aside it might be worth looking at the plasticote range of aerosols as I have found them to be pretty good and I know the black matched the plastic wheel arches on my Navara, never know you might get lucky with the white.
