I know this will generate some flak but is it possible to repair the front bumper on the CIK/Euro type front bumper?

One side is really bashed in..Sorry Michael J Embarassed
I realize it probably did its job and should be replaced but just wondering if there are any tricks to pop it out.
Its not cracked or anything just bashed in.

Shane you talking about the plastic or the steel ? I also had some broken fiberglass where the upright mount bolts on the dump truck. We "rubbed" more than I realized.

Just the plastic..i guess when it rolled up on your rear tire it bumped in the underside of the bumper.

drill a hole in the bottom so that you can stick something thru the hole and push the plastic back out. Depending on how bad it is you may need to drill more than one hole.

If the plastic is sealed use that hole Carl mentioned but drill a small hole. Then use an air gun and air pressure to fill the bumper. It will pop the bumper back out. A little air goes a long way. Just like inflating a tire.
