Default HOW DO I REPAIR SCRAPED FILLER ON A CAMRY BUMPER??

Hi,

I recently backed my 2005 Camry into a immoveable object.

The bumper was recently repaired before this incident and all the old
filler is peeling off.


I have no tools, except for an electric drill and a sanding block.


Can someone outline all the steps in order and supplies needed in
doing a "do it yourself job", excluding spray paint and filler which I
just purchased.

I also realize I need some special sandpaper and as I have no disc
sander, would a block sander be good enough?

My car looks spanking new except for the damaged recently repaired
bumper.

I was quoted a figure for the repair by a auto body shop. I can
purchase four winter tires for the price of the repair, which I now
need.

Your input, if you are experienced in doing this repair, would be
appreciated.

Meteore.

Or maybe flame throw. Using Google groups to post is like running
fingernails on a blackboard.

Hey, Bytor, I guess this guy didn't like my answer. Let's try again:


Wave a magic wand over it.

Let's make this as simple as possible:

GET SOME FLEXIBLE FILLER
FILL IN THE CRACKS AND SAND IT SMOOTH
GET SOME FLEXIBLE PAINT
PAINT IT

AND THERE'S NO NEED TO SHOUT

we can hear you just fine.
