Crack in my WK front bumper

Hey guys, I have a pretty big crack (6") in my front bumper cover and it seems to be getting bigger and possibly fanning out. Is there a quick/easy way to fix this? can I just slap some epoxy on the back side and call it good without even taking it off?

There is some epoxy that is made for bumper repairs.. If you go that route, you will want to get some 80 grit sandpaper and sand the area where your gonna put the epoxy so it stays put.. I generally will tape the outside of the bumper so the crack is all lined up and put the epoxy on the backside where its sanded.. Once it dries up, pull the tape and you should have a decent fix.. To go the extra step, use a grinder and make a valley on the outside where the crack is and use a flexable bondo to fill it, sand smooth, prime and repaint..

Reinforce the repair material with some fiberglass window screen inbedded in it on the back side. If you grind to front side to a "v" for final fill and repair, sand the hard stuff off from grinding before filling. Fill material will hold better.
