best way to fix CF front lip?

so i slighty nudge a curb. it didnt crack, but it has some scratches. i tried buffing it, but some of the white marks are still visible. any DIY that can make it not as noticable?

i would wrap it in matte black vinyl if all other opinions fail. You dont have to worry about rock chips or bubbling from the resin if you have a rep lip.

That was my DIY thread, even if there is some cf exposed, you can still do the process to repair the other 90% of the lip.

im using Eibach springs with an Arkym lip. its not very aggressive, but quite low on certain streets. you know how TO streets are....BUSTED UP! only the passenger side corner is slighty damaged. its very small, but i know its there.

im still gonna try your DIY. like i said in the first quote its small, but i dont want water/snow going into that exposed area cause it might bubble up. great DIY btw. thanks!
