I bumped a parked car...

I am so mad at myself. Anyway, I didn't hit it hard at all, but he screws that mounted the van's license plate cover kinda dug into the paint on the front bumper of my truck. It didn't completely remove any paint anywhere, it just made a set of minor indentations in the bumper. Is this possible to fix? How much would it be? I can add a picture if you guys need...

OP is it that bad thaat it needs fixed?
It's really not that bad at all. Its just one of those imperfections that really bothers me for some reason. Even though its an '08 I just got it and I want it to be PERFECT. I just got the windows tinted and I am shopping for a head unit. I want to do a bunch of other mods as well, I just need to do it all slowly bc I am poor. But before I start doing ALL the mods I wanna fix every little thing first. I wanna run outside and snap a photo now but its dark out and late and what not... Maybe I just need to take it to the body shop

Nothing lasts forever. The sooner I accepted that it's impossible to keep my my truck perfect, the easier it was for me to traverse those trails with thick ocotilio plants. I got some great permanent pinstripes now.
