Question Honda Civic 1998 Bumper Repair

Some moron clipped my right rear bumper in a parking lot leaving a large scrape and a two-inch vertical crack where the bumper goes under the trunk. Can I repair the crack with some kind of epoxy cement? Is it a complicated job? Will a simple spray-over do for the scrape paint job or is some special surface preparation necessary? I am assuming the bumper is plastic. I am a novice DIY as far as bodywork is concerned. Thanks.

If you search the archives you should come up with several previous discussions on the subject that were quite extensive. Another option is to get a replacement bumper cover from someplace like here:

The downside is that you will either have to leave it unfinished or pay to get it painted.
