It's been so long ago, I cannot remember the procedure or materials I used.
I have to say I have zero bumper repair experience if it involves a tear. We send out all bumpers with any kind of structual damage and have at everywhere I have ever worked.

We have them "remanufactured" and they do a pretty darn good job. Check in your area and see what they would charge. If they ask you how much they sell for new always give the the lowest price you can come up with because they usually set their reman price in relation to the new replacement cost.
