A band-aid fix would be a small piece of thin aluminum behind the crack and a few pop rivets through both. You can sand down the face side of the pop rivets and add some touch up paint. that would get you through until you could replace the bumper cover later.

Nice looking Stang by the way.

For stuff like that we use a mobile pointless dent repair service. I have a friend that buys car from auctions that need minor repairs and resales them. A PDR guy would come by and repair that in about an hour and only charge about $150 and you'll never be able to find the crack or know it was ever cracked.

Body shops will have a hot staple gun or a plastic repair kit. Either one would fix it right up... Unless that is fiberglass

Sounds good! I had that hole for almost 2 years before I got a new bumper. If I were you id go with a new design. The termi is my favorite but your paying ALOT for just the same look as you had before

Get a new one. Keystone and Certifit are national.

139 bucks at Certifit if you can find one that has it, plus they don't ship.

399 at Keystone.
