After repair and paint, it would probably be more cost-effective to just find a used one of the same color.

tried that one. no local salvage yards have a used silver GT bumper.

I would replace it - its plastic - lesson learned don't kick plastic in the winter well unless you want to trash it.

plastic weld epoxy and touch up paint FTW its not like its a cf bumper or anything you can make it look good enough to get by

thats my thought. epoxy the back of it and make it semi flatish and call it good.

No lesson learned. i knew it would break. thats why i did it. I hate this car with every fiber in my body but cant afford anything else. If i could go back, sure i wouldnt do it. But thats only because im anal about the cosmetics of my car. Oh well.

yea there are 3 knuckle sized dents on the driver fender of the camaro. Timing issue. Whoever put the dizzy in the old motor somehow managed to get it about 130 degrees off from what it should have been. Im not talking about the degree marks on the indicator, im talking about the actual dizzy.
