98 Front Bumper Problem/Fixable or Not

I bought this bumper for cheap but it has some damage from a fire. Is this fixable with bondo and sanding? Or are there other ways of fixing this?

the bondo wont stick to it for long...and the paint will eventually crack bad. i'd say you're kind of SOL my friend

U can get a bumper valence cheap at Rockauto.com....only problem is sometimes shipping is more than the part, depending on what it is.

If you live anywhere near the Mexican border in CA, this is a great place to buy cheap, but very serviceable parts. they have a shop in Nogales AZ not too far from where I live

...parts made in Taiwan, but they meet my needs

might call them when doing comparison shopping...they carry mainly auto body parts, but also a few items like radiators.

hope that helps
