Bumper material

I was wondering if anyone knows what material the front bumper cover is on a 2001 GT. I had an unfortunate incident this weekend and hit a deer. The damage is cosmetic but I just don't have the money to replace this part. I want to use a plastic weld but need to know what type of material to use to fuse it. Thanks in advance for any information...

Re: Bumper material

not urethane, abs plastic, they sell plastic repair kits at your local body repair store, you wont be able to find this at autozoo or advanced, you will need the plastic mesh that goes with it and some bulldog plastic adhesive promoter,grind with a grnders and use the mesh for reinforcement, you have to spray the bulldog before putting putty and everything

what did they switch from from 98 to 99, 98 I think was fiberglass wasnt it? what ever it was it was hard and not flexible, the 99+ are quite flexible and thin like a urethane.

Re: Bumper material

94-2004 is abs, just different stiffness, whether urethane or abs plastic, the steps i described work great, and we used to give lifetime warranty on it at the body shop.
