your "stance"


yeah it's pretty hard to know without pics, but I would probably say you will still need to get it painted. I would imagen it will eventually start chipping.

Bumpers are typically painted with a flexible paint designed to NOT crack when the bumper taps something. If the paint is cracked, it needs to be re-done. Also, I would check on the bumper support and make sure there's no damage.
