Christmas Hit and Run

I was at my buddys home exchanging gifts for christmas. There about 5 hours and when i came out to my car i found my front bumper laying in the road.

Someone had hit my car and didnt have the balls to tell me about it. So i am currently driving without a bumper as ugly as it is. I think its a plastic front end not sure though??? Just wondering if i could melt plstic onto the inside bumper crack to seem them together till tax money comes in?

i Figured using a soldering gun with flat tip to melt black plastic coat hanger onto mesh inside the bumper to hold it together. Would it last for a few months? Does anyone have a better idea? I figured its going to look god awful so im going to buy a cheap bra to cover it up.

Ill be buying supplies from Autozone this weekend to work on it Sunday, any suggestion will be helpful. Remember this is only temporary, Thank You

Get a specific plastic repair kit. You can't just melt some plastic and use it like glue, it won't work.

Repair Plastic Parts and Create Plastic Parts with PlastiFix

Do it right, you can actually save the nose and not even notice it once it's repainted. You might get out of it without buying a new nose unless you just want to.
