I can manage scratch repair, little chips, but this is pretty spread and goes all the way through the paint. On the front bumper "lip", if you can call it that. I am not sure how this happened, I'm guessing sliding into a curb/snowbank or something like that. Previous owner, not me...
Those are called "spider-cracks" and are usually in the substrate of a plastic part. You will need to sand down to plastic, and see if they are still visible. If they are, sand a little more. If they cant be sanded out in the first few mm of plastic you will need to "V" out the cracks, then use SEM Problem Plastic to fill them. San smooth then use some flexible polyester filler. High build primer, then spray. Luckily this is all below that hard line, and you could probably keep it very unnoticeable. Let me know if this helps, or you need further clarification.
