I’ve got an old car with a deep dent in the bumper. I would like to pop the dent back out. I’m not looking to restore it to original condition — we’re way past that— but making the bumper convex again would be nice.
- the small suction cups i have (2” diameter) don’t stick due to the shape of the dent.
- I don’t have easy access to the backside of the bumper. I suspect most of the clips holding the bumper in place are broken or bent, and reattaching might be hard.
Can this dent be popped out in some way?

(I’m guessing the solution might involve some hot water and a rubber mallet. But hoping somebody can advise on how to access the back of the bumper — remove headlight, remove the wheel, etc.)
