Well I guess fiberglass could do it but would it be worth it?

That doesn't look quite as bad as the hole in my rear bumper. I've got another one I can put on too, but I think I ripped out the mounting holes when I removed it.

The only problem with fiberglass (I think) is it won't flex the way the rest of the bumper will. I hope there's a alternative 'cause I don't wanna take off yet another rear bumper.

The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

Some auto paint stores carry a flexable repair you mix 1to1.

Would repairing the bumper then painting it cost less than getting a new bumper cover from the j/y?

It will be close I am sure

thats WAY too much. At the JY's, you'll be expected to pay anywhere between 25-100 dollars for a front bumper cover.

You can try fixing that, but it will never be perfect. Hopefully you're not picky.

Yeah, I think I may put this one on the back burner for now. I desided not to repair this one. but i did hack the center part that goes between the head lights off. the silver part then went between the head lights was missing when i bought the car.

The service replacement is black and the body shop paints it to match. You might shop around for an outfit that'll paint your black bumpers maybe on the side for cash.

Well I guess fixing the body color bumper was going to be to much, but here is a pic of what i did to "fix" the grey one




it still needs to be trimmed a little....
