    The bumper being plastic, softened up under the heat of the very hot water and allowed the dude to push his hand behind and push out the bumper.

    It may not be 100% perfect if the paint has spider web cracks though.

    This is a very impressive technique and i got really amazed when i tried it on a friend's car and it really worked for me.
    Such things should be in our knowledge because they really do help.
