Default Cracked Bumper Fix

So my bumper was damaged a while back and I'm getting tired of seeing it. Anyone got any tips on how I should fix it? It's a complete crack along with spidering in the paint.

There is a bodyshop near me that handles damage like this using a guy who specializes in plastic welding. Maybe see if there is anyone who does that in your area, it won't be 100 percent but I have seen a few before and after bumpers up close and it seemed worth the price.

The dealership caused something similar on a wrx i owned. They plastic welded And I felt it was a good fix. Not 100% but high 90s.

Awesome, that's what I'll do then. I was really more worried about the paint on the bumper where it is spidering, hopefully that won't be much of an issue.

After the weld, the bumper will need to be resprayed.

I had mine fixed. Then somebody cracked it in a different place.

I bookmarked this product after seeing the demo on performance tv see the youtube link below, bumper tear repair @2:10. I've done a lot of plastic welding and this product looks like a much better alternative.

edit: sorry just noticed the label, this doesn't work on polypropylene...
