how bad is the damage.....if theres a crack in FG, youll have to sand it and "dig" into it from the front........reinforce it from behind with FG resin and sheets.....and use body filler for the front which shows on the outside........FG isnt the best thing to have to sand smooth and wouldnt normally be used on the outside......so it would be FG for strength on the inside....body filler on the outside smoothed in and spot painted

heres an example



u can see the crack in this here bumper^^




^^there it is again....except the clearcoat around the crack has been sanded to give the body filler(bondo) a surface to stick to....the crack should really be dug into and not just covered over...cuz then it will reappear again over time




^^^theres the crack after its been applied with body filler and sanded to smoothness........the BACKside of it would be reinforced with FG sheets for strength and no sanding needed........might have to add body filler a few times on the front to fill in all the little pops.....once its smoothed and blended in, it would need prime





primed and primed and smooth sanded till its all blended in, in this case my entire bumper was repainted.....the 1 spot can also be spot painted...but that requires alot more skill.....and dont know if ud even make it this far

500 grit is a good size sand paper to get it smooth. ... start with 100 and work your way to 500.

Thats what i did on my motorcycle.
