Yes, I left the metal on the underneath there for good, like I said, I saw it about 10 years after the initial repair and it stayed straight...I don't know if this would work in your case but it sure held when I did it. Also, like I mentioned, the repair on the finish side was minimal, and I think heating the bumper in the water tank helped a bunch...much easier to to keep the top surface straight when I applied the adhesive and the metal reinforcement strip.
