dent in bumper....options

hello all...i have question on what to do about my front bumper.

i have a dent in the front bumper that i hate looking at...i was thinking about buying a full mask. ive never liked the way a mask looks but anything would be better than the dent. plus my sedan is NBP ...so it wouldnt be as noticable. my other option is replacing it with a new bumper. but that would be 350.00(tsunami) plus paint (plus ill have to buy the rest of the kit to balance)...vs. 100.00 (full mask).

suggestions or other options (repair?) welcome.....and if anyone has a full mask and pics please let me know
thank you

Can't u just fix the bumper?I know the bumper on 7th gen civic is made of plastic but I think it can be fixed if u bring it to a body shop.If u have a plan to buy the whole tsunami bodykit in the future then it'll be fine to change the front bumper first and save up to buy the rest later [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

you could probably fix it... depending on where it is you might have to remove your bumper... but just heat it up using a blow dryer(to soften the bumper) and pop it back out. mine had a cut in it so i cant but for a dent it should work...

i did that also. follow the diy for clearing headlights to get your front bumber off. heat the bumber up on the back unpainted side for about 5-10 minutes depending on the tempature you are working in. once the bumper's dent is warm apply pressure on the dent and it will pop out.
