W202 C220 major front end damage help

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

glad you're safe...

here in the US once the airbags deploy and/or the frame gets damaged it is considered as a salvage title vehicle...

you could get an automotive puller and see as to how far you could pull your frame/body to its original spec.... if not the idea on the doner vehicle is ok... but strength is an issue....
