eh? back in the 40's, xx's did cars, planes, electronics, ships,
crypto... has something happened to debilitate one half of the
population all of a sudden? how come only xy's "know the ins and outs"???

nobody here will do it for you. if you want do it yourself, it you
might want to address that slight perception disability you seem to have
first.

then, you have a couple of options:

1. being plastic, it may simply pop out if you press from the inside.
2. see if you can find the parts in a junk yard and simply replace them.
3. sign up for some evening classes on basic body repair. doing a
professional job takes time and money for specialized equipment, so #1
or #2 are probably the cheapest fastest routes.

Believe it or not, many bumper cover dents pop out when heated with a hair
dryer. More stubborn dents (again assuming they are just in the plastic
cover) can be popped out with a "Pops-a-dent" (available at many auto parts
stores) with heat from a hair dryer. When heating it isn't the temperature
that is important so much as giving the heat time to soak in, at least three
minutes or so. Keep the hair dryer moving to heat the general area rather
than making a small hot spot.

And if you're lucky, some dents can just be pushed out by hand from behind
the skin.
