Repairing a small bumper crack and paint scuff
I need some help determining the best way to proceed with the 2 problem areas pictured below:

There is a small crack at the bottom leading edge of the rear bumper. (find the wheel weight and go a few inches to the right)

What would be the best type of glue to repair this? (I'm okay with the repair being moderately visible as the crack is small and I don't want to get into repainting if avoidable)

My other concern is a paint scuff on the trim of the front bumper (below)

What is my best bet to remove the paint scuff without damaging the trim?

(FYI the fogs have already been replaced)

Thanks in advance for your opinions!

Epoxy glue for the crack. some glue might bleed through as you press the crack together. You can wipe off however, one way if the crack is very thin is to get a syringe and inject into it.
As for the scuff? brake clean, compound and a rag.

For the crack, Bondo has a cheap bumper repair kit. I've used it before on my old bumper and it worked like a charm. Dries really fast and you can just use touch up paint over top of it.

As for the paint scuff. Just take it off and use some paint thinner or something similar.
