I just purchased a fiberglass bumper from up22.com. It looks great, but how do you mount it?? might be a dumb question but I have no clue.

Are we talking a stock replacement style racing bumper? If so you have to figure out what you want and fabricate it yourself or have someone do it for you,I can't remember where I saw it on this sight but I think the caption had to do with weight reduction,the feller had a hot race car and was chopping all kind of weight off of it and fabricated mounts for a glass bumper,look around and you'll probably find all kind of interesting stuff in here,Hope I helped,Later,KillerDave

Ya its a stock replacment bumper but obviously fiberglass, I thought it was going to bolt right on. But there is nothing to mount it to the car just like a fiberglass shell I have no idea where to even start

3M sells a bonding glue you can glue plates on the back of the bumper to mount up. You can use it to glue metal to plastic it's pretty cool stuff.
