How to repair plastic fender flare?

A friend of mine has a 2002 chevy truck that has painted plastic fender flares on it. He fell asleep driving and scraped the guardrail. It ground away some of his flare.

I was wondering is there a special filler for building this area back up before painting? The flares aren't bad and I'm trying to save him some money on the repair, but I don't know anything about repairing this plastic.
