Default plastic molding?

So here's the story....I installed my CSS FMIC, and the core that came with it, of course, requires some trimming of the bumper. Needless to say it was 2am when it was time to do it and it didn't turn out too well, there was some jagged edges and whatnot along the lower grille. A buddy of mine told me about a plastic you can mold into form and let it dry? Anyone know about this? Basically i want to fix it up, possibly without having to use fiberglass, then fix all the paint chips and repaint it....anyone know of some way to remold this plastic?

take the pieces you trimmed off and plastic weld them back onto your bumper, then re-trim it.

hmm, maybe just trim it so its at least a straight line across the bottom. That way you wont have a bunch of jagged edges.
