Hi guys,

If the plastic is damaged you will need to fill the scratch with some kind of flexible putty...3M polyester putty works well for this kind of application.  After the putty dries sand it smooth with 600 - 1000 grit.  Next, prime the area with a flexible primer like SEM part number 39133, which I use all the time.  After that, just paint the area then clear it with a good clear.

If the plastic is NOT damaged just skip the putty stage and go right to sanding, priming, painting and clearing.  If you need step by step instructions or if you have any more questions you can e-mail me at

The scatch isnt really deep, but you will noticed it has a big deep grove.  I order one of the flexible bumper fix and of course material I needed.

Will bondo will fix this type of scratch?

The flexible bumper kits are:

"Flexible urethane repair material for repairing tears on flexible bumpers or parts. Sold as a complete kit."

See the answer from CPaintCars above. You can use the plastic filler we sell on our site and our rubberized primer.

What about if the bumper is torn right where it attaches to the vehicle?  I have a tear right at one of the holes where a screw goes through.  Can this be repaired or should I just get a new bumper cover?

The bumper repair kit is basically like an epoxy so I would try it first as it is quite strong. Without seeing the size of the tear or exact location, I couldn't guarantee it will work, but it is worth a try considering the cost of a new bumper cover. Let me know how it works.

I have repaired small tears in flexible bumbers using a bit of epoxy glue and fiberglass cloth.  I used glue as the areas were small and I couldn't see buying a whole can of polyester or epoxy resin. 

I've repaired tears and mounting holes this way.  The epoxy is flexible and bonds strongly; the fiberglass provides strength and structure.
