It was supposed to be plastic but after looking over the work I think they may have used sand because the surface is pretty rough. I have a lot of work to do getting it ready for paint.

When mine was blasted it opened up the surface like a sponge, was very porous and required a lot of work to fill and smooth out. Mine was also done with soda and I had to rinse and neutralize a few times until I was happy there was no residue. It made me wonder if just spending the time with a DA would have been better. Luckily yours has the removable bumper extensions and you don't need to deal with the corrugated area that mine has, what a pain.

Opened it up like a sponge is a good description. I tried the DA sander and it just clogged up after about 15 seconds, Heat gun was effective but slow and paint stripper was also slow not to mention messy. So the blasting was probably to best was to go. As I have looked over the car I found several more spots to repair that I wasn't aware of, so I will have so work to do over the next couple of weeks.
