Arrow W202 C220 Elegance major front end damage

Crushed the front of my W202 C220.
The right hand side of the bumper was pushed in, smashed the right hand headlight, crumpled the bonnet and set off the air bag and seatbelt tensioners.

Have fixed the air bags and seatbelts so it is drivable.

However removed the front bumper today to reveal that the front frame on the right hand side has been damaged.
Looks like it can be 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 what can be done which would be appreciated.
Thanks Bazza

As you can see the bumper was pushed in a good 50mm

That is not too bad. I would pay to have the subframe sheelmetal pulled straight, then complete the remaining portion of the repair yourself.
