cracked bumper

So I noticed tonight that there suddenly is a crack in my bumper. I'm pretty sure someone backed into my svtf. This is it's first time not being in perfect condition so i'm kinda upset. What is the best way to fix this?

probably buying a new (or used) bumper cover and having it paint matched.....if you try to fiberglass it it will always be noticable.

i hate when people do shit like that tho......someone at my job dropped a trash bag on my hood and dented it the other day.....noone fessed up...i just know that's what happened....i'm still pretty pissed about it

Depending how bad it is you may be able to fix it. I feel your pain, I've had a crack in mine for years, then I noticed my lip was all messed up the other day. Im hoping to get my whole front end repaired this spring.

Crack is by the foglight

take it to a body most shops will give you a free quote and tell if its fixable or if it need to be replaced. i belive if you try to fix it your self that you want to fiberglass the inside to shape it and then use bondo to fill the cracks from the out side.

I had the exact same thing happen to my car, about 6 weeks ago. Made me so mad, I hate parking on the streets in Chicago. Let me know what you do, I need to do it too!!

If its just paint damage you can probably get it wetsanded/resprayed (i.e. the PAINT is cracked).

If the Plastic is cracked... either live with it or replace. If you paint over it, it'll probably just separate again down the line.

OR you can get one of the Drifter Band-Aid Stickers for it! :)
