Default can it be fixed?

So long story short, I hit something running across the street and just want to know if it could be fixed or another solution or just suck it up and buy a new one.

Sure you can fix it, but it won't be as strong as original and may crack out depending on the quality of work. It maybe be easier just easier to save up for a new one.

Buy a new one. Not worth to fix. Just zip tie stitch it for now.

definitely fixable, but a whole hell of alot easier and better peace of mind to just buy a new one. Unless you have the correct material and ability and are able to save yourself a ton of money by doing it yourself., just suck it up and buy a new one.

Unless you know what you are doing, fixing it will just result in it cracking and ruining the paint job you put over it. Possible, but do your research. Fiberglass the back, glue and sand the front and paint work. Unless you have materials already, just replace

Thanks for the replies. I figured that it would be really difficult to fix. Guess I'll stitch it and buy a new one soon

Buuuuuut, if you just look at it wrong it will crack. And if you happen to touch coming into a steep driveway or something... goodbye hard work.

buy a new one if you try to fix it you run into the risk of showing cracks and waisting you time.

Can fiberglass and put work into it like theyve said for not much but will easily crack even with tons of work. Can ziptie stitch to keep it from getting worse until a new one is put on. because racecar.
