    At least if the paint does flake it won't be too noticable. Lucky for you the bumper is black beneath the paint. Next time I pull a bumper maybe I'll try to do a write up on how to if that hasn't been done yet?

    That would be helpful, Fummins.

    No, I decided to leave it as is. It's not too noticeable, and it doesn't affect the car. You can remove the bumper and straighten it out if you have the time and resources.

    I joined this club this weekend after finding what was apparently a really deep pothole on the road to a beach. It also popped the connection clips between the bumper and the fender. The local body shop quoted about 2 hours of labor to return it to almost new...probably just going to let them do that as life is busy. Lesson learned...pay the stupid tax.

    Where I live in a big city there are plenty of mobile dent repair companies. They come out to your house and the price is "reasonable"

    I would watch them do it and then after you see how you can do it yourself the next time. I know you can get those suction cup things at harbor Freight Tools for under $5

    If you want to try "something" than buy one of those and try sucking out a dent or 2. Mine has dents all over and its only 2 years old. This car is as fragile as an empty beer can on the outside.

    That would work good for most dents but it's not gonna fix this problem caused by hitting potholes or parking curbs. The bottom corner of the rad support gets pushed backwards causing the upper outer corner of the bumper to bow out/crease where it clips to the fender.
