How to Get a Dent Out of a Car Bumper:

Looking to learn how to get a dent out of a car bumper? Start with grabbing a heat gun or hairdryer, a pry bar, a jack, jack stands, safety glasses, and gloves. Elevate your vehicle safely, and remove the splash guard if needed. Next, apply heat to the damaged area with your heat gun or hairdryer. When the damaged area has warmed up, use the prybar to apply pressure from the inside out. Start by applying force to the deepest part of the damage, then you can work your way out until the dent is gone. 

How to Remove Scratches from a Car Bumper:

Sometimes, fender benders are less severe and don’t result in deep dents. However, you may still need to learn how to remove scratches from a car bumper after a minor dust-up. Grab a buffing compound, a drill, and a touch-up pen to get started. Start by cleaning the area thoroughly. Next, run your fingernail over the scratch to assess how deep the scratch is so you can properly buff it out. You may want to apply a clear coat, then give it time to dry. Once dried, go over the prepped area with your touch-up pen to mask the scratch!

How to Repair Automotive Cracks:

In most cases, cracks in the fiberglass of your vehicle require a professional touch to repair. We only recommend attempting to repair fiberglass on your own if you’re familiar with the process and have experience working with fiberglass. You’ll need to get your hands on a fiberglass repair kit and the right safety gear to take on the job.
