Can these be fixed?

Since body panels are hard to get near me (and expensive when you do find them) I need to fix mine if its possible. What do you guys think?

Bondo on dents and stuff but that plastic that has the cracked. I'm not body expert but I don't think that's fixable..

That's what I thought too, but I need more opinions because I had 2 people tell me they could fix the plastic, but no follow through. And when it comes to body work, I have no clue what I'm talking about.

Umm yes the plastic is fixable. But no the plastic isn't. Re-read that. It's correct. Most places won't attempt that, it's cheaper and easier to replace it honestly. And to actually fix that you need a plastic welder (not a welder made of plastic for the record) and a few odds and ends that any body shop will have. However, it does look like an awful big piece to try that on. So once again I'd order one from somewhere. Oh and yeah the body panel is really easy to fix(and that's grading on a curve. Body work is never ever easy, but for body work the panel looks easy to do)

It's better and easier to just replace the bumper cover.
The fender and door are fairly easy as already stated.

Ok. I had my uncle look at it and he said he might be able to fiberglass some of it.

But paint is being pushed off now damn tires and inspection.
