I noticed the other day I have a small spidering cracking in the paint on my rear bumper. Not sure how it got there, maybe from the winter weather?? Anyway, is there any way to repair this? I can take a picture later to show you exactly what I mean. I wasnt sure if some sort of scratch remover would work?

Sounds like old age to me. :rolf2: I had that on my Z32, but it was very faint and only on rounded corners. I don't know how to get rid of that short of a new paintjob.

thouse kind of spider web cracks usually happen due to stress to the paint. ie, a minor fender bender that leaves no damage...until you look close, or the sun catches it right, and you see a circular spider web pattern.

Maybe someoneback into you while you were parked somewhere. Who knows. It's unlikely that occurs without external cause.

I think LoFi is right. That is definitely how it happens. You won't see it like that on metal pieces, just plastic. It's from the plastic being pushed in and then bouncing back to it's original shape.

I'd try putting clear nail polish on it until I could get it painted. It will keep it from cracking more and it's strong.

Other than that, the only thing I can think of is getting it painted. You could go by a local body/paint shop and see what they recomend.
