Anyone have thoughts on this: I am trying to get the creased dent out of the front bumper. I have been to two different auto parts stores, autozone and pep boys and both are telling me that I have to have it taken out professionally or pull the entire bumper off and push the crease in that way. Isn't there an easier way? You all have seen the pics of the damage...but I'll put one up of just the crease.

Push it out from behind and put one of those bandaid decals the Honda kids use on it.

You need a heat gun if u wanna push that out, if u do use one dont hold it in one spot too long or it'll burn the paint up

Not really, something that gets pretty hot, just move it around on the area u try to push on and move the gun around, like i said if u hold it in one spot it'll burn up the paint. Good luck!

Definitley not. Most manufacturers go the cheap and "economical" way now.
