Rubberish type front bumper cover repair/customization.. what to use?

I was wondering what I would use to fill in or repair tears or gashes in a rubberish style bumper cover? Like the taurus, civic and flexable covers.. like those.. my truck has this type of nose and I wanted to find a better way than what I did to redo it to advoid cracking.. this is how I did it about 2 years ago.. I just want to know what I should fill in the section that I cut out.. please take a gander at what I did. amature stuff I know.. but thats what I had at the time and now I want to do it right... http://hometown.aol.com/chargerturbo/nosejob.html
I also wanted to do a center mount exhaust using a Z28 camero exhaust tip.. I think it will fit the lines nicely.. heres a pic of it trial mounted.. old bumper..
please lemme know on the board or drop me a note at FastNFuriousGLHS@aol.com
thanks a bunch..

I think the center mounted exhaust will work woth the boxy lines of the car quite nicely.. just need to figure out how to work with this flexable rubber bumper cover stuff to make it happen.. I need to notch a little bit of the bottom of the rear bumper to make this work.. that way the tip can sit a little higher and come level with the top edge of that bumper cover line. got the idea from a 67? Shelby Mustang and to sorta keep the Shelby theme with my car as well.. It just looks like it belongs to me.. where its cut was just a blank nothing space.. any thoughts? I think its urathane or something like that.... someone said something about polyester once. but didnt go into detail about it.
thanks

Turbo.... I have to agree. That pipe looks great on that. Unfortuantely, plastic/rubber bumpers are not my thing. I do metal and ask the other guys at work for their opinion on the soft stuff. I will say that it looks, by the photo that it may be a little tight against the pipe. You may be able to "mold" it in around it using heat. That is what the bodymen use where I work to repair some that are out of shape. Don't take my work for it tho. Might see what some of the other guys say. I'm sure someone out there does plastic.
