new St owner, needing some front end repair and parts

so, after looking at ST's for a few years, i ran across one that needed some front end work after being in a wreck. i made a ridiculously low offer that i was sure would be turned down, but low and behold he accepted it and i now own a 2014 ST1 in Performance Blue. the biggest issue part wise i have run across is the bumper cover, as i can not find one anywhere other than the dealership, and the aftermarket knock-off i have found looks of a low quality. anyone else take on this type of project before, or have a good part source? ive already ordered a hood, fender, and headlights. still need the cover, a radiator most likely, possibly intercooler, passenger inner fender, and the impact absorber. im very confident of the condition of the rest of the structure, as the crumple zone on the drivers side is un-touched and the passenger side is barely crushed, and is straight behind the mounting point

Get on focusst.org there is one guy that rebuilt a wrecked st. His thread is in the ST build section. That website will be much more helpful than this one for ST stuff as it is a ST site, not focus site.

since you're rebuilding it - buy an aftermarket intercooler. You can thank me later
