    i'm looking at a rear bumper that has had, at some stage, the tailpipe melt a small, semicircular chunk out of the exhaust recess. as the rest of the bar is in good condition, could this be filled and repaired? the damage is about the diameter of a 50 cent coin...

    Hi ringfeder,
    I have done plastic welding and most of the time it can be repaired. Like everything it comes down to the cost factor.
    Depending on the damage a little bog might be needed to level it and then it would have to be repainted.

    Try to use bumper bar filler (has a Flexi additive).

    If it’s rigid use normal bog, if it’s flexible use bar filler :)

    Yeah its not bouncing or flexing like a bumper would. I will just use what i have, which is regular filler. Thanks EYY.
