    Default Cracked bracket

    IMG_7571.JPGIMG_7572.JPG

    Sooo I had an incredibly lucky find, I now have an 03 bumper in my possession! Picked it ip for $35 at the local junkyard. I finished touching it up. Have the primer on and ready to paint. But I have this issue. The bracket area that holds the upper bolts in is broken on the left side. (i uploaded pics of good and bad side). Would anyone happen to have any suggestions on how to fix this?

    I have the piece you need with the 2 threaded holes, but as far as getting it to stay.... Maybe a ton of JB weld would hold it. Worth a shot. Pm your address.and I'll send that.

    Subbed for solution. I have the same issue with my '03 front end. I think I've seen someone mention a flexible product by 3M or SEM, but I haven't looked into it yet

    1 running Ford out of 5 isn't bad, right?

    I would cut out an aluminum plate and drill matching holes. Then use the ends of the aluminum plate and drill supporting holes to the outer areas you still have to support it.
