You can't exactly roll down to a parts yard and pull this kind of a bumper off. Saleen parts will either come in the kit or you're going to have to pay the body shop what they quoted you. Even if you do find the bumper it wont match your paint because of fading due to sun exposure. I'd honestly say at some point you have to cut your losses and pay the body shop. You may save some change finding the bumper elsewhere but you still need it blended.
