Body shop for fibreglass

So I just trashed my front valance (lower bumper piece). It's a custom bumper made of fibreglass and I need to find a shop that is known for repairing fibreglass. I am also missing a piece about 10 inches long so they will have to reconstruct it. A lot of shops don't know what they are doing with fibreglass.

I am located in Mississauga, I'd prefer semi-local. Thanks guys.

I would try a boat dealer in your area I bet they would know where to get fiberglass work done. However I had a Fiberglass bumber on my Integra that got crunched and it was WAY cheaper to buy a new one and have it painted. Got a quote of $500-600+ for repairing or $400 for new bumper and paint.

Thanks guys. I have the 2001 harley davidson front fascia:



It's a fibreglass recreation that I purchased through a FTW member 4 years ago. I don't know where he got it from.

I got a quote today from the dealer for the OEM urethane one and they want $1400 after significant discount. So It looks like i need to fix it. A boat shop is a pretty good idea, hopefully there is one pretty close.
