    Repair Puncture Hole in Rear Bumper?

    I backed my '04 silver Ody into (onto?) an exposed license screw on my Volvo which resulted in a perfect little 1/8th inch diameter hole in the bumper.

    Any ideas for some kind of filler or putty material to repair before painting w/ touchup paint?

    Many thanks and be well, all.

    David

    Bondo will fill it and can be sanded down.

    They also make a special bumper repair two-part filler that works well. You can get it in small tubes at Advance Auto Parts (and probably other auto stores). It will be pretty hard to sand it down without also taking too much of the surrounding paint for a touch-up pen to look good. If you can, put some tape on the back of the bumper to keep whatever filler you use from sinking in too much. Good luck to you!

    Hey guys, thanks!!

    David: What is Bondo and where do you get it?

    Snake: I'm in NJ and haven't heard of Advance Auto Parts--are they in the East? I will check for two-part filler in parts stores near me. When you say "put some tape on the back of the bumper" do you mean on the inside, meaning I would remove the bumper?

    Thanks again and be well, all.

    I don't know if you have tried a repair yet or not but thought I would add my 2 cents. Last summer I built a '32 Ford pedal car from scratch. In that process I came across a Bondo product called bondo quick fix. It would harden with exposurse to the sun. If you can get to the back side of the bumper I would use this product from the back side and put tape or something else on the front side to keep it smooth while minimizing, if any sanding of your factory paint. After it is hard, use touch up paint.
