Yep, it's a sentimental car. I've attached close up picture of the grille and the bumper. It's not worse, but comparing to everything else (the body, the interior and what not), it's pretty eww with dents and dings! (I've also attached a picture taken before a minor accident)
I'm looking for nearly pristine condition parts. You're right, I couldn't find good bumpers so far locally, I've even purchased the oem lights for the bumpers which I've saved to install on a good one. I've done a bit of searching, but couldn't find good ones so far. I should head to Panchikawatta, a friend of my suggested that area as well.
I've no idea bout electroplating, I'm going to look into that as well. Thank you very much for your help, kudos!
