Unfortunately you wont polish these sorts of marks out. The paint and the plastic bumper dont flex in the same way, hence you get cracks in the paint when its deformed beyond its flexibility. You have to add plasticers to the paint used on plastic panels to increase the flexibility. You also have to use an adhesion promoter to in effect stick the paint to the plastic. (Different plastics have different needs). Then each layer, Primer base coat clear etc will have their own additives to make them work . Painting plastic bumpers properly can be horribly expensive. Hence the dont worry about it approach, you are sure to do it again. (or someone else will do it for you)

Do they drink alot of Red Bull in Jersey, cos going by their F1 drivers they have a nasty habit of crashing into one another!
