A long time ago, someone scratched my car's rear bumper in a garage. Now I have the necessary paint, undercoat, clearcoat, and extra fine sandpaper. Any advise on how to proved with these? See pictures below.

That was thoughtful of them ugh...at least it's on the plastic so no rusting action will happen.

From those pictures, best thing you could do is wetsand the excess touch-up paint, then buff out the sanding scratches, and call it a day.

Those appear to be more like gouges, not scratches. Sorry to tell you, but with out those being professionally repaired, a little bit of primer, paint and clear will prolly make it look worse, and make more trouble than it's worth...

Agreed.... the only way to fix this and have it look half way decent is to repaint / clear the entire bumper cover.
