Unhappy Backed into -> Cracked FRP Bumper -> ??

Long story short, got stuck parallel parking for the first time by work and paid for it. Some guy backed into my car, but thankfully left a note and is being very cooperative about it.

I attached a picture of the damage. I initially thought it was a small puncture after seeing the note... but after opening the hood at home, it's obvious that it's cracked all the way through– its even keeping the kidney grill on the other side from staying in place.

So I'm not sure what might be the best plan of action? It looks like I might need to have it repaired, re-sprayed and then re-wrapped? Is it busted and better off starting fresh with a different bumper? It's an Amuse front bumper, and the hassle of going through and getting a new one might be a big pain (again)

Any insights are appreciated.
