Rear Bumper Issues
This is a discussion on Rear Bumper Issues within the Mustang GT350 General Discussions forums, part of the Mustang GT350 Forum category; I had the same issue with rear bumper. I actually took my car to Ford Dealership Dixi Ford dealership, Mississauga, Ontario Canada.
This is when ...
As for my rear bumper - took it to my selling dealer - a smaller old school dealer. They kept it two days and did the work in house. Bumper fixed and after a year still looks perfect..... As for me I stay away from the large corp like dealers.

Hi, I just picked mine up from Family Ford Body Shop in NJ. The manager Craig was very nice and told me that there is no way to do it in the Ford estimated and paid 1.7h. I offered to pay extra for the time, so he can do it perfect but he refused and said he does it perfect anyway.
I was stupid and did not make pictures before, but it was as bad as most with a huge gap at the tail light area, especially on the drivers side. See the attached pictures, left side is now nearly perfect, right side is not Audi quality but totally acceptable.
No scratches, 5 miles driven (a little joyride around town is "ok" for me as long as nothing is messed up) and everything else seems to be ok as well.

Thats one of the best looking ones I've seen fixed. So many either turn out worse when they were done or one side ok but other not. Since we only have a small dealership here on my 16 and then 17 I was afraid to take it to them in fear of them screwing them up worse. Both cars gaped noticeably. Just learned to live with it. The 17 did have a much wider gap on the lower trunk lid edge on one side then the other side but they had body shop fix that and it came out fine. Looks good!
You guys will get a kick out of this. I took mine to Ford to due the TSB before it was outside of warranty. I take it to the body shop and the guys were like... we've done it but the outcome isn't the outcome you're going to want customer. In fact, we strongly suggest you don't due the TSB and you allow us just to remove the bumper and reseat everything. I said, whatever it takes to make it look like it just got out of the factory. FYI, I believe they got paid as if they had applied the TSB.
Outcome, well I went in with no issues and can't tell if what they did made any difference but I guess since it's not wildly noticeable to me I'll just call it okay for now at least. It's bound to gap eventually... I'm sure.
