Default Deep Scratch on Rear Bumper (WRB) Can Anyone Recommend a Place to Fix in the NY Area?

Hi all,

So I currently have this deep scratch (slight plastic came off) on my rear bumper and was wondering whats the best way to attack this bad boy. Prime? Touch up? Clear coat? Sand? Polish? I've tried touching it up with paint but as you can see from the pictures below, it came off slightly on the top. The scratch is about a little less than an inch long and I don't exactly know how it happened. It looks like a philip screw driver just dropped head first and scarped the paint/plastic off my car. At this point, i would like a professional body worker to try and get this fixed as clean/flush as possible. Any recommendation within the New York area? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Matt

Highly recommend Gotham Collision (formerly Gabriel's Collision) in Long Island City / Sunnyside.

Ask for Frank and tell him the Subaru brother's sent you.

They've done work on a number or WRB 2015+ and work on many Subarus in general. Paint work is top notch and not overpriced.

I've been to Jeff at Kings Body Work. He does a hell of a job at a great price. I'm moving out of Brooklyn now so I'm looking for a shop around the long island/queens area, but I'm very picky so I most likely will go back to him.

The reason he does such a good job is because he doesn't take shortcuts, and is anal about having things done correctly the first time.
