This is a spot repair (blow in) on the front of a dodge bumper. This is a metallic blue being blended and partially cleared. The tape on the edges is known in the auto body repair trade as a back mask where the clear is blended on the roll of an edge. This is in no way a top quality repair, it is an economical repair suited best for used car lots and lease return vehicle. I must say they do still hold up pretty well when done properly. The bumper was polished with a coarse compound for the blender to adhere while the rest of the area that was cleared got sanded with 3000 grit paper, except the primer was 600.
This was a scratch originally that was feathered out and primed. For more information check out our website at www.refinishnetwork.com
