This fiberglass bumper was on my e36 project car when I bought it. Obviously, it has seen better days. With the low cost of poly bumpers these days ($150 shipped) is it even worth it try and have this bumper repaired?

Anybody w/ some body shop experience care to comments on cost? I have to imagine it would cost me at least $150 to repair ... if it's even possible. It has two multi-direction cracks in each corner, and a small single direction crack on the top middle. What should I do with this?



Thanks,

it seems like it would be a shame to just toss it. it was probably expensive at one point.

i have 0 experience with fiberglass so it's not a DIY.

In all seriousness, i would likely scrap it, buy a new one, get it sprayed, and install. Will be far less a headache than trying to salvage what you have there. Best of luck.
