My 1977 924 has the original bumper and has a crack. I wanted to weld it. I thought it was steel, but it’s not. Does anyone know what material it’s Made of?

They are made of aluminium. The front is obtained by cast pressure, the second one is extruded.

ROW bumpers are fiberglass, with the exception for Belgium, those have Aluminium bumpers like the USA cars but with the ROW shape.
Rare stuff, a friend has one, i think Thomas from werk924.com also has one.
