Repairing scratches on a car bumper can be done in different ways depending on the extent and depth of the scratches. Here are a few common fixes:
1. Minor scratch repair: For superficial scratches, you can try to use polish or repair wax to lighten or remove the scratches. Clean the surface of the bumper first, then treat it with polish or repair wax according to the product instructions. Use a soft cloth or sponge to gently wipe in the direction of the scratch until the scratch is reduced or disappeared.
2. Touch-up paint repair: If the scratches are deep, touch-up paint repair may be required. First, you'll need to purchase car restoration paint that matches the exterior color of your car. Always clean and sand the surface of the bumper before repairing it, then use fine-grit sandpaper to lightly sand the area around the scratch so the paint will adhere better. Then, using a fine brush or cotton swab, carefully apply the touch-up paint to blend with the surrounding paint surface, according to the paint instructions.
3. Professional repair: If the scratches are too deep or in a large area, or you are not familiar with car repair work, it is recommended to seek professional car repair services. Auto restoration shops or auto repair centers have professional equipment and technology to professionally repair scratches to ensure that the restoration is better and matches the original paint finish.

If you're not sure how to repair a scratch, it's best to seek advice from a professional mechanic or an auto restorer.
