Idk if a shop can paint fill them though or if it would require a complete respray. $600 won't bother me much if it requires a whole respray. Bumper could use it anyways. If they find micro fractures tho, I may just purchase a knockoff amuse for painting.
I doubt the bumper is trashed. Respray and call it a day.

Yea. Im not bothered or worried at all. The only thing that slightly scares me is having whatever shop I choose do a proper job so the paint matches identically. Grey metallic Pearl is probably not the easiest to match.

Any bodyshop should be able to match it fine, unless you are going to a friend of a friend that is wanting to start a bodyshop but has only pulled out one dent in a 1992 Tercel. I wouldnt worry about that too much.

that damage doesn't look that bad. Find a shop that knows how to blend and I'd say maybe $400 max

Called the best shop in my area. He said it would be best just to respray the whole bumper. Blending would look good for a few months, but you'd start to see the blended areas over time.

So it's looking like a full respray of the rear. Not that I mind. Can get rid of some rock chips as well. hahaha.

This weekend I need to hit up my place for the fuji bumper. Need to fit the tabs on the bottom and it is ready to go.
