Filling font bumper emblem holes

If I get the holes filled, does that mean the entire bumper has to be repainted? What are my options?

tape on the backside and paint inside the holes with whatever color paint you got.

That wouldn't get rid of the holes though

There is little plugs you can get to go in there. go to ebay or a dealer and probably get 2 for like 6 bucks.

Re: Filling font bumper emblem holes

A plastic welder and a junk piece of an old bumper will seal off the holes when you bond them from the inside. After that, a skim coat of an epoxy filler will fill what's left.

EDIT: w00t, 2,000th post!

Re: Filling font bumper emblem holes

It'll be a little tough to get the finish to look even without some kind of filler and repainting the whole bumper. I guess it just depends on where the hole is and how big.
