    Got some paint bubbling on the top of the corner of the rear bumper trim. Am I correct in assuming that this is just paint blistering and not rust as the bumpers are synthetic or am I missing something?

    Can anyone give me any idea how quickly this could be fettled by a decent and sympathetic body shop as I have someone coming to see the car on Sunday... Bubbling is right on the top edge and around 5 inches long and about a quarter of an inch down.

    It's Jasper Blue by the way.

    Cheers for any QUICK advice!

    A photo would be good.

    Is it on the actual panel at all? I had a rust bubble on the join area on the panel, literally right above the bumper, and it was rust....bad rust all over the inside!

    It's only on the inset trim - not on the bumper itself - I thought they were plastic/resin?
