Son of a......

Some ass hit me and ran in a Parking lot. Dent in my bumper(plastic). I'm starting my build pretty soon so I'm not totally blown, but is there a way to pop it back out? I took the whole thing off and its one piece... Should I cut a hole in the back of the bumper to pound it out?

If the dent is big, you can cut or drill a hole in the back of the bumper and push the dent out with a piece of wood or something while heating the bumper with a heat gun. Sometimes if the dent is small, most or all of it will pop out with just applying heat to the dented area.

No, a hair dryer is not hot enough to work. Use a heat gun on a low setting. If you apply too much heat it can melt the bumper.
