Broke Brown Focus

Hey guys...and gals, need some help for my broke Focus. It got broke when my kid pushed a deer off the road with it...just days after the wife and I decided to drop comprehensive ins., in order to try and save some $$. That came back to slap us in the face! Its a 2005 zx4. Does anyone know if there are any videos of someone doing any kind of repair to the front bumper, upper radiator support, grille, or anything in that area? I took most of the stuff off up there, so I could get an idea of what I was going to need to do it myself. A friend welded replacement bumper on. That came with lower rad. support, and I just got the upper rad. support, but not sure how it attaches back in place. Heck, it don't even have to be video, step by step pics will do. I've spent many hours on computer, looking on youtube to see if there is something there, but not much help.
Thanks for any info.

like lego the pieces need to fit back together
pay attention to things like gaps around the hood

unfortunately every crash is different damage and reassembly will be lots of trial and error for you

Sometimes a big hammer is required to massage things back into place

yeah...as I just found out. Found some brackets stuck in the box the part came in. Went to try and assemble them to the rad. support and the holes don't line up with their on brackets! Freakin foreign junk.
thanks for your input.
