Want to know whats the best thing to use for a plastic bumper repair--looked at bondo and flexible filler glaze---two holes in it each about the size of my thumb on the back driver side corner----

Those holes have to be solidly filled with something first and then you can use bondo to finish. If the original piece of the bumper is still there, use a heat gun to get it back into position.

We use a perforated, sticky drywall filler tape (Marine shrink tape) on the inside and then use a 3M super heavy duty epoxy on the inside, then get a good finish on the outside.

The epoxy requires a special gun and one time use mixing tip.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.

If you can find an old junky bumper, practice on that first. There is tons of information on the web for repairing plastic bumpers.

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.
