    HELP!!!!! I need a fiberglass bumper

    anyone know where to get a Trans Am rear bumper cover in fiberglass? I dont wanna go through the hassles with another urethane one.

    mine has a 4 inch split in it, and is hanging very poorly. atleast with fiberglass you could repair that.


    anyways, my parents said, that I cant get anymore performance stuff till I get the new rear bumper.

    also, whe I do get it, I amd gonna paint the bottom plate area black....I think that would look killer on a dark green car, and gonna match that with smoked tailights....

    personally id stay away from the fiberglass...its not flexible, its heavy, it probably wont fit right...u can probably repair your current bumper anyway..

    yeah I agree with today's technology its easy to repair the urethane ones as easy as it is a fibreglass one. Besides, the fiberglass if you hit something hard enough to tear the urethane one, you will definately damage the fiberglass ones. There is a reason the whole bird is fiberglass with the exception of the rear fenders and bumpers.

    well, I want somthin that is easier to paint then urethane. I heard paint doesnt like to stick to it.

    plus, I bought the car with the broken bumper.....it wasnt me....

    If the bumper is preped correctly, there is no problem with the paint sticking to it. I have had mine for 8 years, repainted twice and never problems.
