eek New XR Front Bumper : Fix Options

After a low speed fight with a weighbridge my ute now is looking a bit worse for wear, Cracked, scuffed and 1 smashed foggie.
Now my questions
1) Does any one have any idea of the price of a new one? (XR Front Bumper)
2) If there is not much of a price difference, a GT front is it, bit of a wank?
Sacrellige?
I have painted the scratches with paint so apart from the missing fog light its hard to see the scratches and gouges unless your reasonably close. I know i'm up for a least a grand for the repair so i'm going to have to wait a couple of months to save that. I dont want to ruin my good insurance rating. ( Hard to come by when you have a "performance car" at a young age) So i'm not going to claim it on insurance.


Any Ideas or sugestions appreciated.

Re: New XR Front Bumper : Fix Options

well.... you would be able to get a new front bar, with foggies in the colour of your car for less than $1000.

i got mine with foggies, grill and xr headlights for $1100. (but i then had to paint it as my colour was no longer an xr colour)

oh, and that was all new.

Re: New XR Front Bumper : Fix Options

Thanks fellas!.
I was hoping there were a few aftermarket bodykits out there. That awc GT one looks real smick but id prefer to not get fibreglass, but thats not to say i wont!

my mate has a T-series bodykit on his AU and his was really badly scuffed and flaked up. The flaking is why i am hesitating as it gets worse and worse., plastic takes more punishment. But thanks for the directions i'll certainly look into it

Re: New XR Front Bumper : Fix Options

Re: New XR Front Bumper : Fix Options

This one will need bog to fix the scuffs and holes, and I could try to plastic weld the cracks but i dont think it will look that good. Its is 9 parts stuffed.

I tried to attatch some pics but it was taking ages.
