The Cracks/Splits in the front Bumper. Anyone know what it'd cost to get that repaired or if I should even bother? Can't get any other pics it's of a Bodykit I want to buy. My Car sits on 18's with Large Tyres so sits fairly high off the ground as it's not lowered, so I'm just thinking it'd be a fairly obvious bit of damage.

I wouldn't even bother, Just go to the wreckers and find a new front. Probably work out cheaper and a lot less hassle.

Fair call, wish it was that easy. The wreckers around here are complete crap. The whole set is $400 including the fogs and Black Headlights so I may aswell go for it I tihnk.

Check out HOLMART website,brand new front VX SS front bar-$299 or do as hi-ryder suggests! makes sense get a price off Holden before out laying money to wreckers,sometimes its cheaper to get new than get second hand

The Kits a good 9 hour Drive away, I had to drive 10 hours to get my Rims. I don't mind driving for a good deal, haha. So where would I go about finding someone who could repair plastic? Would it only be done in larger cities or the smaller scale cities and such have them too?

As stupid as it sounds look under plastic welding or who ever in your area repairs bloody wheely bins.

Ended up buying the kit, and it's not cracked at all on the front. Just bad scuffs so it's all good. Not visible once on the Car. but one of the lines on the back has cracked/split. Right under the Tailight (Drivers side) Looks like it's not aligned properly but it's snapped ><. going to check out the plastic wleding as suggested and get it fixed though. Thanks for the info.
