I have a bad feeling it's not what hit the car, but maybe what the car hit. I've done this a few years ago underestimating the distance between my front bumper and what basically was a telephone pole sawed of to just a stump.

The painted part looks bad but i dont think it's that difficult a fix with some matching touch up paint and some wet sanding. I will defer to the more experienced body work members here though. As far as the air dam- hard to tell how much it's damaged from these pics. Prob not much more you. An do there except for sanding down the abrasions.

Re: need serious help

Since its the lower bumper you can patch it up and it wouldnt be very noticeable....see how there is grey on all the scratches...that could just be concrete/ scuffing....give scratch doctor from nufinish a whirl maybe itll help a little although you will probably need to use some touchup paint. The deep scratch with the black is for sure all the way through. Try touchup paint and see! Dont do wet sanding just yet that is harder than it looks.

Ive seen entire v6 front bumper covers for $200 in an ad in muscle mustangs mag (i think late model restoration) since your car is silver itll make paint matching easier. Good luck and so sorry about the unfortunate circumstance...coulda been alot worse though imagine something like that on your door

It's not that difficult. If you aren't comfortable and/or go at things half assed but full speed then avoid it though.

I would get estimates from a good body shop first and then decide if it's too much for you.
