Cracked bumper fix

I hit a dead dog. Car is lowered so it didn't even go under the car I just hit it out the way. The bottom lip I'm thinking about fixing it myself and wrapping it in fiberglass carbon fiber, unless someone has a better idea? Anybody know how to fixed cracked paint on the bumper?

A bumper is so thin that any decent fix would cost about the same as a new bumper before painting. The damage to a lip may be superficially covered up but only be a temporary fix. It may make more sense to claim it on your insurance and pay your deductible.

Was the dog dead before you hit it?

If so how did you know it was dead?

Yea I figured the cost to fix the damaged area would be the same or more than to repaint whole bumper
