-A couple different grades of sandpaper
-Touch-up paint
-Rubbing/polishing compound

Altogether it's probably around the same price than buying two pairs of those plugs, but looks way better.

The results weren't absolutely perfect, but just looking at it you can't tell from more than a couple feet away, and that's IF you're look for it. If I were to do it again, I'd remember some lessons from the first time and could do it even better.

I guess it depends on your paint color, though. White was pretty easy, but if you have a metallic or what not it might be trickier to match.
Did you respray the whole bumper or just that area?

wonder how hard it would be to slap on some 'spats' like many bumpers have. obviously would have to source some that are for some other random car, and try to trim & fit to they install nicely. Just an idea i was tossing around haha
