Default rear bumper

Hello everyone. The other day someone rearended my cruiser. I got out and saw that the only damage was a couple of small dents in the innerwall where the license plate is. Can this be fixed without replacing the whole bumper piece? The other partys insurance is going to take care of it. They are sending out an adjuster tomorrow to look at it. Any ideas on howmuch something like this woul cost? I would post pics but I dont know how. Sorry. Thanks in advance.

Just had a small paint scrape done by a local paint shop, it was on the edge of the plate hole. $60.00, but no "dent" had to be fixed.

I am 1 for 2. 1st time they fixed it; and the second time they couldn't. Shop around until you find someone who can!

it depends, is the dent in the grey textured part of the bumper (assuming your bumper is one with the textured centers)? if thats the case, itll never look right after retexturing on refinishing. If the other guys insurance is paying for it, why not replace the bumper cover and make it look brand new again?

For about $100 you can buy the chrome piece that covers both "pillows" and the center part where the license plate attaches ...if you like chrome.

Frank, your right except (unless I missed it) Onyx PT didn't mention (nor does the profile) what year his/her PT is ? So, odds speaking, he/she is more likely to have a 2001 thru 2005 than a 2006 or 07.
