Default I need help!!!

So I was pulling out of a parking lot and I couldn't go sideways because there were cars parallel parked way to close on either side and the dip was huge. It cracked my zerosports bumper on the top and I really need to know if it's fixable. I really hope those jerks who parked there got parking tickets.

That's not that bad. It's fixable. All it needs is a little filler, sanding, and paint. Take it to a shop and get a quote or do it yourself if you know how.

Ah you have no idea how relieved I was when I read that . . . I literally teared up when I saw the crack. Would it be hard to fix it myself?

You might if you know how to wet sand and blend paint. It's possible you might have to repaint the whole thing to get it to match. Best thing to do is ask a shop if doing a "spot repair" would work, then try to figure out if you want to tackle the job. If not, then let the pros handle it.

I think I'll just have them do it then, cause if it doesn't match that'll be all I see when I look at it thanks a bunch!
