How to pop out a dent in a rubber bumper

This is a demonstration on how to pop out a huge dent in a rubber bumper. It also shows a few steps on preparation for painting and the end results.

Using a heat gun and a flat piece of metal coming up from behind the dent, the huge dent is pushed out. It takes several heat sessions and pushing, even cooling with water to start bringing back the original shape. The bumper shape is brought back 90% to 95% to original form.

Tips on sanding and priming are in this video and then what the bumper looks like after it is painted. One tip is to always spruce up the whole car looks after a spot repair, it will draw some of the attention away from the damaged area and onto a renewed look for the whole car.
