Plastic Bumpers

I have a 2006 Renault Trafic, it has a number of scuffs & scrapes on the front bumper. Other than replacing the bumper, has anyone got a favourite method of dealing with them?

You can get bumper restorer from Halfords, they do a grey and a black unless you want to go to the trouble of having them painted.

For my black bumper I used Hycote bumper spray

It was fantastic and brought all the trim up to look almost like new. So far it has lasted 6 months. I will probably have to touch up shortly because the areas I have sanded above have caused white runs on it but that's my fault

It sprays on really easily and dries within a few minutes and looks great.
