So today at 630am I had a front bumper on my car. At 7am my **** was on the floor. My mom and all her wisdom decided to smash it into the cement parking stop thing (whatever it's called). It's a OEM Ford 04 Cobra bumper so i'm really trying to save it, can anyone take a look at the pics and let me know if there's a way to fix this....

Basically I need to fix the thing that connects the bumper to the car which is seen here


And this is the other side, which is the side that broke off



My car can't really pull off this look

So someone help:(

Done this many times... First find someone that sells 3M 8115 panel bold and the dual dispenser gun to use it (btw not cheap but cheaper than a new bumper). Second, small rivets & gun (1/4) Your going to lay a bead of panel bond between the old cracked tab and the bracket and your going to rivet new metal stock to sandwich the bumper and the bracket. Move the new metal stock as far down as possible. Because the bracket is torn off its gonna take 24 hours to dry completely but, your not going to have any more problems on that corner. Save the tips on the 8115 because those tips are 6 buck a piece... It's an investment but you'll fix all find of problems with the 8115 so, good luck

3M 8115 is awesome. Used it all the time when I was working auto body. Not sure of the price but it sure works. I think they have some quick drying formulas too.

Yeah they got a whole line that awesome but, 3M..... you would think they would let off the gas on pricing... I get 8115 for $30-40 on ebay and when I'm in a pinch I get locally for $45 so look around first.

I might go straight for the 3M like you said man. I don't want to be on the highway and have my bumper fly off (which would not be cool). Any suggestion on stores that carry that stuff in Miami?
