Outline the section you want to cut with a pen. Then gently cut through the outline with a cutter. You can use sandpaper to soften the cuted part so that it will look nice.

Don't forget to use a brand new blade when cutting the bumper. It makes the cutting much easier and better. After that, use a grade 60 sandpaper to get the perfect shape. And then you use grade 800 to smoothen out the edges
