When I bought my Camry in September it came with some minor scratches on the rear bumper.

If I want to get rid of them myself, I was thinking of doing some wet sanding with very fine sandpaper. Then I would get a small bottle of the paint from a dealership (or any other place that offers a good price). If this is a good plan, how would I actually apply the paint? Small brush? Small roller?

I'm attaching a photo of the scratches, though you can't see them really well.

To make it look RIGHT you'll need to spray, blending with a regular spray gun and then a clear coat. NO shaker cans! what I would try is go to your dealer and get the touch up paint and try it. it will look better than the white looking spots that are there now but will still be noticeable.
