So...the black plastic piece that has the "waffle" pattern on it that mounts to the front of my car to absorb the impact of a wreck was originally held on by rivets on my 1993 T-Bird. It broke off following a recent fender bender. I want to go to the junkyard to pick up another one, is there a way for me to re-attach it without a rivet gun? I'd prefer not to have to duct tape it haha. My front bumper is sagging without it.
Self taping metal screws, or thread the rivet holes with a tap and use the appropriate length and thread bolts, or plastic push pins, or double sided body adhesive tape, or rivets like the factory did.
