    Scratched my Model X front bumper during a parallel parking exercise. Took a nice gouge out of the plastic in 2 places. Sensors didn't see the hitch/rack setup on the car in front of me. :-(

    My fault for trying to squeeze in to a tight place.

    I'd really like to get it smoothed and maybe a touch up to repair. Any ideas on:

    1. Can I do it myself? What type of putty?
    2. Touch up paint. My color is not available at the Tesla online store (Midnight Silver Gray). Any ideas where you can find some?
    3. Should I get it done professionally? What would the cost be for two dime size gouges in the plastic bumper?

    In San Diego, so if any of you have a referral, that would be great. Thanks.
