    Need to carry out a bit of a repair on the fixing bracket of this front bumper.

    Just wanted to hear people's recommendations of what substance is best to use.

    Cheers.

    The fixing bit should be joined to the bumper, but it has split and partly come away.

    Is it strong stuff?? Would need it to be strong enough to hold the bumper to the car, and I'd guess a bit flexible too.

    Ahh sorry didnt see that, i would bond with the polyester stuff and secure with my favourite of Sikaflex.

    Thats strong enough to bond body panels on, a repair should be a bit of urine

    Just use a bit of tiger seal, well hold back to the bumper forever, strong as anything.

    To be fair, my arrow could've been a bit better positioned. :happy:

    Sikaflex sounds like it could be the one then. :thumbsup:


    EDIT - Or Tigerseal maybe.
