Not happy I should of know better.

Went to get gas, and as I was pulling out of the parking lot I cracked the FB. We normally make a right out of this parking lot, but today I had to go left. On the left side when your exiting there seems to be more of a raise in the road, so I also gouged the front of the bumper too. Any advice would be great.

Ouch! That sucks! But yeah, what Zack says. Just grind it down on the back and throw a fiberglass patch on the back. I'd cut through the crack with a hacksaw blade though, so the peices can realign without any pressure on them. V out the front side down to the new glass and use some kitty hair on the front, followed by a skim of spot putty them prime.

That does suck, i have a cracked front bumper aswell, but it was due to negative degree temps in NY, i smashed a ice/snow bank haha...it shattered into a thousand pieces.
