My car has had a DIY repair to the bumper, before I owned it. It was a fleet car of an engineering company and it appears they just let the apprentices fix it!

It looks like someone has reversed off a curb and tore the bumper off forwards, if that makes sense.

Anyway, I want to get a new bumper (from a breakers). But I am unsure what else is damaged. There looks to be a black plastic bracket on the wi g that is broken, is that part of the bumper or the wing?

Here are some photos:

Rivets.... :eek:

I'm thinking that the black plastic looks oem, but the white or clear plastic might be part of the "repair"
