Can this GFX be saved???

I just bought a Camaro and the front GFX was not on the car. It was in the guys garage. He gave it to me, but here's what it looks like. Is this repairable?? One of the tabs is broken off and the front looks like it was shaved or something.

Probably, but it looks like you would pay more to repair it, than it would to just buy a new one.

Easy way? Bondo would be my guess. But if you were savvy with the glass, you could use fiberglass. But if you want to fix it right....duct tape.

Very funny. I didnt think bondo or fiberglass would work because it doesnt flex. I should have listened to my brother and threw that POS in the trash.

It can probably be fixed, with bondo or the fiberglass bondo, but it will take alot of time applying the various layers, contouring, ect. Then it is hard to say how well it will hold up after all that effort.
