@Davedacarpainter so I think I want to patch those holes in the bumper cover and I wanted to get your opinion on the best option to do it? I already have fiberglass mats, resin, and bondo available if those are good options.

Don't use the fiberglass repair. it'll be to brittle for the plastic and will eventually break away.

I'll look up on my thread my favorite way to patch holes and repair plastics.

I'll edit this posts in a few minutes with a paste from it.

Ok, this is from my Cliff Notes thread. It starts on page three and is done on page four.

A little farther in the thread is where I repaired my interior kick panels that had speaker holes in them. That might even be a more useful repair that you could use for your repair.

The Panel Bomding Adhesive is some incredibly strong stuff.

You were referring to that polyflex stuff you used right? I'll have to see if I can get some of that at home depot today. That came out amazing. I never worked with that, but I'm assuming I put down the mat and layer the adhesive over it? And then sand?

If you have a hole saw and a cordless drill visit a junk yard and cut out some pucks the same size from another bumper cover and panel bond them into yours, easy peasy.

Nah, not the polyflex. Use panel bonding adhesive, some drywall mesh and a few round pieces out of your old bumper.

Read my link, you'll see what i did. It'll hold forever.

Yeah man, I think it might be easier and cleaner to cut a rectangle out and mold one piece in than 4 individual pieces. That’s what I would do.

Anyone else make a lot of impulse buys? I now have 2 different hoods, 2 bumper covers, 2 extra doors, extra fenders, etc.

Kind of frustrated now. I have a coolant leak somewhere. I'm pretty sure it's coming from the thermostat housing, which I'm dreading taking it off again. I might rent something to do a pressure test to be 100% sure where it's coming from.

Update. I found this almost perfect cover for $100 so I'm going to sell the one I just bought for $40 and buy this one, instead of going through the process of patching the current one.

There you go James, that’s your best bet.

Post that stuff, someone will buy it. Well, maybe. I’ve been trying to sell some almost new LX taillamp lenses and a BBK CAI for like 6 months. Anyone interested? :p

Every time I see your hood latches, I want to make the impulse buy. I definitely don’t need them, but they are cool!!!
