If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem mate :)

If you specifically want to paint it, I think I'd go with TS-13 Clear :)

Around here we have auto part store the sells "Bumper Black spray paint", some of the older cars had black plastic bumpers from factory and that spray mimics that color.

I have used that on several plastic parts with luck.
As here on my heater for my Capri

thats great work but if u where me what tamiya paint be best?
in a spray can
um there is a shop where u can go to get a paint colour made up but i'm not sure if its works on platic
thanks for th idea great thanks
i think it still would be best if it was a tamiya paint in a can
and to get it to shine do i still use the TS-13 Clear
if i could get this right then i could restore a lot of tamiya back to new then
save millions then

They can make it work with plastic, they just needs to add softner to the paint.
My Volvo V40 etc have plastic bumpers that are painted body color, that have softner added so the paint will not come off when the bumpers are flexing.
Anyone that paint modern cars should know this.
You only need to tell them that the paint is intended to go on plastic bumpers and they should know what to do.

And hardbodies like Lunchbox etc, is many times painted with automotive paints. so paint hould work on most plastic matrials, except on Lexan, that needs polycarbonate paint.
On several projects I have used automitive paint, like the Beetle project with trailer that was calle Bugbuddy.
That was painted with Ford RS Focus lime green paint mixed at a auto paint store into spray cans, main color and clearcoat.

But on most hardbodies I have uses TS paint from Tamiya as that is ment to be used on plastic, like plastic kits, hardbodies, styrene etc.
