Corvette Bumper

Will a fiberglass bumper be affected at all by the cold?

When I took my aftermarket bumper to the auto body they told me it is not suited for our climate. They tried to convince me that as soon as it gets very cold (-30 degrees Celsius) which it will, that the bumper well shatter from very little. They said that even hitting a snow drift would shatter the bumper due to it being made out of fiberglass. Is this possible?

Of course if you hit something then it will break, as for shattering in the cold , not likely. watch ice road truckers and see that the fibreglass hoods on their trucks seem to be fine even with all the vibrations the trucks get. Think the guys at the body shop have been smelling the thinners again. Besides, why would Gm continue making the corvette if it was a bad idea 57 yrs ago?
