    Front Bumper cover ?

    I broke my front bumper cover driving up an incline. There was a piece of debris on the side of the road that I didnt notice and when I hit it I backed up and it ripped the cover somehow. Is there any way to have it repaired or am I out 800$ that it costs to get a new one? Thanks for any help guys.

    I know RKSports make a better looking front bumper for our rides for like $350 (look around)... https://www.rksport.com/shop/item.asp?itemid=916
    And if I'm not mistaken SLP makes one also.
    Then of course there are "new" GTO's in the junk yards now thanks to morons who cannot drive

    they also have repair kits for rubber/ plastic bumpers that are a two part epoxy. you have to sand the backside and glue a webbed screen on the backside and V out the tear on the front, then fill the V with the epoxy.
    duramix and norton both make several types for different types of bumper material......call a body shop suppier in your area and they should have them in stock.
    you will need the caulk gun(small double tube gun), epoxy, screen, and most come with a few mixing tubes

    Well, I bought this one guys. I think it looks pretty good. It is also a lot cheaper than the factory one. Also bought the rear ducktail spoiler. It was gonna be 500$ to get the old bumper repaired so I figured why not.

    I was thinkin about going with an aftermarket front bumper myself due to my "accident". I like this one since it does allow you to use the factory lights/fogs but it is made from fiberglass. Not a fan of fiberglass since it can "explode" and shatter too easily. The only urethane bumper for us is the one Sarge posted but the fogs are gone.......unless you get an OEM Monaro one!

    Eh, my T/A has a fiberglass bumper and it has lasted these 5 years so I am not too worried about it. I will just have to be more careful.

    I remember when we had a few nasty rainstorms last summer. I ran over a branch about 2 inches in diameter and it got caught in the rear suspension. Man, I thought my diff took a dump. When I saw the branch I was like
