To repair fibreglass you`ll need to get:

A gallon or so of general purpose resin
A good few meters of chopped strand matting
Catalyst, usually comes with free with the resin
Brushes, mixing pots and sticks
A gallon of acetone for cleaning brushes and the fibreglass your repairing
Latex gloves

Have a read of the cfs guide too: http://www.cfsnet.co.uk/acatalog/Web_FibreglassGuide.pdf

For smoothing bumpers, your best off using as little body filler as you can get away with so theres less chance of it cracking. Its not so bad using it on a full fibreglass splitter or bumper though.
