front bumper fix?

Is there a way to fix this hole? I recently went into an accident, right into a trucks hitch and it made a hole into my bumper and took a little bit extra. Is there a way i can home fix this? Someone recommended me to fiber glass it but i dont know how.

Sorry that happened to you...

Haha.
The hole is shaped just like a trailer hitch. It looks kinda cool! Id just put the bumper cover back on with zip ties or whatever and leave it on until you can find a good one at the wrecking yard, hopefully the same color as your car.
I don't think that it would be worth fixing that one, it has some other damage as well.

I know it.
Those covers can be repaired. That one is pretty bad though. Try to find out where body shops in the area get their bumper covers. They usually have sources for used and refurbished bumper covers. Craigslist is another place to look for parts...
