rear bumper scratches and peeling paint

I have had the bad luck of being backed into multiple times at school. my front bumper is destroyed seeing as the jerk who backed into me had a trailer hitch and it left i pretty hole for everyone to envy. as for my rear bumper there is just some peeling paint and spider web cracks. how should i go about repairing the rear? does it need to be replaced or is it fixable to look nice?

The rear can be fixed with a repaint, of course sanding & primering it 1st. The front is a different story......be better off replacing it. Your insurance rate should go up, because it should be covered under your comprehensive coverage.

I'd suggest getting a beater $1K car for school.

sand thru the paint & down to the primer. The paint cracked, so all that stuff needs to go. After sanding, then prime, paint & clear.
