It wont be perfect but it is like thick tinfoil. I had someone hit me in the right rear and was able to use a rubber mallot and a foot/kick to get it back to somewhat normal.

if the dent is in your bumper, watch out for the paint to spiderweb. Look really carefully on the paint now and see if there is little cracks. and ya you can pound that dent out that is im the bumper its just getting access to the dent. if hte dent is in the back you should be fine, there is alot of room back there. But if it is in the front you may need to pull the bumper off to get it out
