    Cant find body parts..

    Heres the deal, when i bought the car it had a cracked front bumper in 3 places, big cracks too.. Ive been looking around on craigslist since i bought the car and cannot find any front bumpers.. I also need a driver side mirror because it has broke and the only thing holding it on is the 2 screws under neath, or can i fix this problem? Where is a good place to buy a front bumper at and/or mirror..

    There are a few auto salvage businesses online that you can purchase parts at a good price. Some places you can sign-up for what your looking for and get emailed when available. I just got some door panels from a camaro/firebird shop on ebay. Good prices and fast shipping! I hate the cracks on my old ones

    Post pics of the cracks in the bumper, you may be able to use a 3M AutoMix Adhesive to hold it together and then do some bodywork to clean it up. AutoMix stuff is not cheap ($65 for applicator and $50 for the adhesive) but its some of the best stuff on the market. For the mirror- just look on eBay, people post them all the time.

    Use car-part.com to search the local junkyards. Once you locate the parts you want you can call them or head to the yard to buy them.

    Check car-parts.com it searches junkyards. How I find parts for all the cars I repair. Also forget the automix by 3m it is expensive SEM makes the same product but the application gun and adhesives are cheaper and work just as good.

    my front bumper is pretty trashed, fixing it would be a waste of money. Its ripped like a quarter of an inch under the driver head light and under both fogs its torn all the way through the whole bumper... if i didnt have anything holding it together now it would just drag on the ground.

    idk how urs is broken, but mine the top part of it broke so i toke like an small thin corner bracket piece of metal i found in my garage. toke a hammer, and made it fit over it, and best as i could. marked it where the hole was actually gonna go so the bolt could go threw. drilled it. toke gorilla glue put it on the inside of it. slipped it on and waited for it 2 dry. good as new, and fit perfectly. u gotta make sure its thin metal piece or u wont have clearance. worked perfectly fine. i put the glue for a just-in-case kinda thing. was alot of work but couldnt find what i wanted. o there was some cutting involved to make it fit right since that bracket isnt perfectly flat. also i had to do it on each sides, since it was broken completly off. take a picture of what u got, u might have a different problem, but im sure we can think of a way to fix it
