looks like you have a blue truck....

Your going to want to use a body filler if you want to do it right.

Just make it easy and get bumper plugs.

If you're not into doing the plugs.... you're talking a full blown filler/paint. Got Metallic paint? That'll be hard to match. You might have to repaint the entire bumper.

Take it to a paint shop and get an estimate - why not?

When I bought my truck - the holes were already there because the truck came from MD (PA doesn't need front plates). I forced the dealer to fix the holes. They did the repair/paint job to repair it. It's OK, but if you look....I can still see where the holes were.

You're probably better off having plugs that are supposed to be there than a half-assed repair & repaint job that people will notice. (did that make sense?)

I dont know if Indigo Ink is metallic or not.

Well maybe I should get plugs becuase its going to be a temporary fix, until I can afford an AP bumper (or ARB)

And yes thats made sense

I used bumper plugs many times. For our BMWs. Indigo Ink has been discontinued so it will probably be SUPER hard and expensive to find me a set of plugs
