    Did you whack the metal sub fender at all, or just shatter the plastic and the bumper cover/light assembly? All that stuff comes right off with hand tools. Be careful of the ones you buy on e-bay. You want to get one that's OEM. There are some guys on there that buy bumpers and reman them. That's the way to go....DO NOT, REPEAT, DO NOT buy the (bumper cover) ones that claim to be made to OEM specs, but aren't off of a real car. They'll never fit. Also, make sure you don't need a crush panel too. You can find all this stuff pretty easy and cheap. The paint job is more expensive. If you whacked the sub fender at all, have a look at how the hood lines up with both sides of the engine compartment. If it's a little crooked, it's frame machine time to straighten the sub fender. I got my fenders and all the other parts from various guys at camaro sites, and the cover off of e-bay.
