    I'm going to go with a c.a.p.a certified bumper rebar from rock auto for that part so far, not sure about there bumper Facia because it's even cheaper than anything on eBay, it's only $39 vs $75 for the cheapest I could find on eBay. Shipping is probably the killer. I've noticed rock auto has high shipping rates.

    That same seller sells that bumper valence on amazon too - it's got one review and it's not a great one. Of course, it's a ton cheaper than the OEM valence.

    Depending on how time critical this is for you, you might keep an eye out on CL. I sold mine there (the whole setup - lights, chrome, all brackets, etc.) for ~$400 a few months ago, and there was another set listed at the time. People upgrading to aftermarket bumpers, I assume.

    update: so i picked up a used one on CL for 100$ but still needs renforcment parts replaced due to being bent and cracked but the valiance is almost perfect. i honestly dont even know how the metal parts got so damaged with the valiance looking so good, i mean its 20 years old but deff garage kept.

    anyway still looking the corner plastic pieces, they seem to be a common area that breaks, since both bumpers i have are both broken in the exact same locations.

    any hot tips on those? anyone have some intact ones their willing to part with?
