Exclamation 2000 toyota celica GT-S fiber glass bumper repair

I have a 2000 toyota celica GT-S that has been lowered to the ground and i have scraped the bumper on drive-ways and such, and well its ripped the bolts out of the bumper and im looking for the best way to do some patch work on those bolt holes. any ideas on how to fix them without buying a new bumper?

thanks!

unless it's some wonder, it's plastic, not fiberglass; called bumper skirt; you do not see bumper itself, it is covered by "bumper cover", or "bumper fascia", and lower margin on it is called bumper skirt, for reasons obvious, if it's a removable part. otherwise, it's a spoiler.
it will cost you more to fix it than to buy a replacement. if your bumper skirt is removable, Certifit or similar outfit will sell you new one for around 40 bucks. bumper fascia, or cover, will cost you maybe couple hundred.
as a quick, and well working fix, zip ties work SUPERB to hold it in place.
by the way, crossing them speed bumps and driveways AT THE ANGLE, greatly reduces this type of damage.

You might take a piece of sheet metal and pop rivet to the bottom of the bumper skirt. Bolting the sheet metal to the frame should hold it all together.

Going off on a slight tangent, if you ever need to be towed be sure to mention the lowering when you make the help call.
