    Bumper Flesh Wound

    So went into a driveway that was steeper than it appeared which caused this fail to happen. Its not terrible but enough to notice and hurts my heart. Anyone have any good ideas on fixing this or covering it up? I really don't think its worth replacing a bumper over but its screams amateur i feel.

    Two options, have it repainted or get a front lip.

    I vote for the front lip

    I was just looking into that, will it actually sit high enough to cover the issue?
    Any front lip you can recommend?

    It should. Worse case scenario is you'll have to use a little bit of touch up paint. That low down most people won't even notice it.
