Dizzy Scratches on Rear Bumper 2005 ion

hi
we recently bought an ion 2(1 month ago) on friday at my wife's work we washed and waxed the car.
while washing i noticed that the top of the bumper cover was getting scratched from probably dragging grocery bags across it.
this was not caused by the trunklid hitting the top of the bumper.
i was wondeing what we can put over the top of the bumper to protect it from these scratches?clear mac-tac? etc.
they are not in the paint but only in the clearcoat(whitish looking)
the pacific blue certainly shows clearcoat scratches up very well.
any ideas would be appreciated.
got a couple door dings already ,also in the clearcoat and they stand out like sore thumbs.
regards,jeff

Happy Re: Scratches on Rear Bumper 2005 ion

hi
yep found that last night and it looks like it will do the trick.
they are also making car bras out of this stuff, but i would worry about removing it if it ever had to come off.top of the rear bumper cover should not be a problem.
it should also be good to use in any hi wear area on the car.
now i just have to find a piece about 3 ft long and 3.5 inches wide here in canada.
thanks for the reply
jeff
