Question about 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2WD
I am not sure exactly what type of plastic it is. I had a few scratches on my car from my dog and my husband tried fixing it himself. He ended up making it even worse so we just took it to a repair shop to get it fixed instead. http://www.euroclassicsltd.com/Mercedes-BMW-Audi-Porsche-Repair-Durham-Chapel-NC.html

Ya i have the same issue. I found a repair kit at my local auto part store for pretty cheap. Lucky it isn't an expensive fix. It only took a couple hours to buff out and the repair.

Urethane is what used to make the front bumper, you can buy a epoxy bumper repair kit for the Urethane bumpers which is what most Auto Repair shops uses. Most auto Parts store like Parts Source will carry them or direct you where you can buy them in your area or even an Auto body shop can help you get the kit. Good luck

Tips for a great answer:
If attempting this, allow a good three hours which is what it took me as there are many bolts to undo and a knack of pushing and pulling fragile plastic lugs. Take your time.
Removal can be done without putting car on ramps as you will need to put the wheels on full lock to get at the wheel-arch liners.
Firstly, undo the various screws on the plastic tray underneath the engine which connect to the front bumper skirt. There are three main bolts with washers which are located half way back, one central and one each side.
Secondly, put the steering on full lock to give you access to the wheel-arch liner for each front wheel. Pull the wheel-arch liner back to reveal a 10mm bolt where the bumper meets the wing of the car. You will need a ratchet with a swivel knuckle and 10mm socket to get onto the bolt head. Undo the bolt and repeat on the other side.
Lift the bonnet and at the front edge you will see four black flat circles. Using a small flat blade screwdriver, lever up the centre and you can then lift up with your finger which releases the retaining plastic bolts.
Looking at the top of the panted front bumper where it attached to the front of the engine compartment, you will see several small slots along the width of the plastic which you can place a small flat bladed screwdriver into and push down gently whilst pulling the front panel forwards in a rocking motion to release the plastic lugs. The whole bumper assembly should then start disconnecting from the car. It is helpful to have a second person to gentle prise away the wheel-arch sections from the car body. The whole front bumper section should then fall away but be careful as the wiring for the front fog lights will still be attached. Take hold of the lamp holders and turn through 90 degrees to remove the bayonet fittings. Pull the bumper assembly clear of the car and place on a fabric cloth/mat to avoid scratching the paintwork.
Re-fitting is a reverse of the above.
