Help: Fibreglass Bumper Crack
 
3 Attachment(s)
Just started working on this car (getting it up to speed). I've got no experience with auto repairs, but I've decided to take things into my own hands.

This crack is a good 5 inches long. The bumper is apparently fibreglass.
I want to repair this at home. I dont exactly have the money to go to a body shop, nor looking to replace the bumper.

What do you guys think?

It's not worth your time to try and repair that. Yes it can be done, however I believe it will just crack again when you go to clip the bumper back into place. The repair will be on a stress point of the bumper and from experience it will crack again.

Just my opinion, do what you want with it ;)

Looks like an ABS cover with a bondo repair that failed. Can you weld ABS plastic?
