Re: How to repair a dented plastic panel or bumper

A mate of mine has done something similar and on one occasion actually drilled a few holes and using a couple of bolts with large washers was able to pull a dented bumper back into shape whilst gently heating it with a hot-air gun and a plastic welding torch. Whist it may have looked brutal at the time the other alternative was a new bumper.
Obviously he had to do his usual buffing and stuffing to hide the holes, etc.
