Arrow Mercedes 1995 C220 W202 Elegance Front End Damage Repair

Bumped my C220 W202 into a wall while "reversing",put it into D by mistake. Dam Auto transmission. I wish more mercs were manual
Anyway, the right hand side of the bumper was pushed in, smashed the r main headlight, bent the bonnet (grille unscathed) and set off the air bags and seatbelt tensioners.
Got the airbags and tensioners fixed and later replaced the headlight.
Now has a L pre update headlight and a R post update headlight
Took off the front bumper today to have have a look at the frame damage.
I have crumpled the right ride of the bumper frame and it looks like it can be fairly easily repaired by cutting off the bent section at the joins and welding on a better section from a doner Merc.
Just wanted to get some ideas and opinions on the issue. Will post pics asap.
Thanks Rich
