Scuffed the bottom of air dam

I've had my sonic blue 04 L for about 10 months now. Last week I was pulling out of a driveway and didn't notice the big dip before getting on the road. Yep, I scuffed the bottom of my front air dam. Some of you may have heard the yell. Sorry for that.

The damage isn't readily noticeable unless you look for it, but I know it's there and my AR personality won't let it be. I'm looking for discussion/opinion on the various ways to fix it. In other words what would you do.<O</O

1.) have it repainted - ~$160
Problem, if I was dumb enough to do it once...

2.) Is there some sort of bottom scuff guard/covering made for the L's air dam ? If yes; who, what, where can you get them.

3.) Would you consider putting a Rhino type polyurethane coating (just on the underside). Advantages: A.) cost= less than $100, and B.) should it ever happen again, the rhino should be able to take a good scuffing. How do you think this would look?

If you're a scuffer as well, let me know. Also, let me know how you fixed it.

Join the club man. I think we've all done it once or twice. Sometimes we forget it's as low as it is.

After about a year I ended up replacing my front bumper (not due to this but due to other stupid things I did). On my new bumper i caught the top of a parking bump and put some little small scratches on it. I ended up filling them with touch up paint and you can't tell unless you crawl under the front.

It would seem like the liner could work but i have not heard of anybody try it...
