Bumper scratch - minor

Appears my garage door must have brushed by the rear bumper hitting the top of it, right below where the trunk meets the bumper. It did not appear to scratch the paint enough for it to be felt with a fingernail, but looks like a light colored line (about 2" long, the width of top ledge bumper below trunk) on my JB color.

Any DIY suggestions - tried some QD spray but no effect. I am so pissed as it is the first wound on the 3 month old car and it is self-inflicted.

Did the same thing the other day because my damn contractors make it so hard to get out of my garage. Meguiar's Scratch-x 2.0 should take it out. Just rub it with an applicator bad until gone. It may take multiple applications. It's readily available at most auto parts stores and pretty much idiot proof - you won't hurt your paint.
