Front Bumper Repair

I own a 2000 Mustang GT and my bumper has fell off. The two main clips in the middle are now broken and seem unrepairable. Has anyone been able to fix this or any ideas on how to because a new bumper is very expensive so I am open to all ideas. Thanks for any advice or help you guys can give.

I've messed with enough mustang bumpers to say; go to rock auto.com and order a new bumper. I've ordered a few from them. I usually buy the front and rear together, and it usually runs me about 3-400 for both with freight shipping included in that. Front should run around 150. Once those tabs break there is no fix that is easier or cheaper than just replacing the bumper all together that I am aware of. Click image for larger version

Oh, and as you can see from the pic they are CAPA certified bumpers. They do have cheaper ones, though I haven't used the cheaper ones before so I can't speak on their quality and fitment.

Okay. Thanks. I found out when looking deeper than my bumper didn't break, it was my nose headlight panel. So I bought it for 80 and bought the hardware kit

I want something a bit different from the OEM GT, Cobra, and Mach 1 splitter. I would love to have the two piece Roush stage 2 or 3 GT chin splitter. They are expensive though in my opinion.

It's always nice when it turns out to be an easier, and cheaper fix.

Replacing that panel is not an "easy" fix, IMO. I need to replace mine a the headlight retainers broke, but I honestly don't feel like disassembling the entire front end just to replace that panel..... maybe with enough beer I would get the gumption to do it....

Just an update. I've had the bumper on the car after the repairs for two months now and is still going strong
