Default Rear bumper reinforcement

What'* up everyone. Recently, I took my Bonne to a friends dads shop to throw on the lift so I could replace the brakes. While on the lift, I decided to lift it higher and walk around underneath her. What I found nearly broke my heart. My rear bumper reinforcement was rotted out and was only being held on by a single screw. I'm now in Florida away from her. While I'm down here,I'm looking for a new one. I found one online from Rockauto and it looks like it is the one. What I need, if possible, is if someone could possibly take a picture of their reinforcement and how it'* bolted on to stay so I can show my uncle *the mechanic who gave me the car* and he can tell me if he can do it when he comes up to N.Y. All I need is a picture of the reinforcement itself and a picture of where and how it'* bolted on. Also, the part from Rock is for an SSEi. Would that really matter or it'* the same body and everything? http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=1421756. That'* the link to the part but I don't see how it can be bolted to anything. It'* really urgent since my bumper is about to fall off, and I really don't want that. lol. Thank you

As I wad reading ur add I wanted to help but after checking ur link I realized that for me to help you means I have to get my number off to snap similar picture, and that is what I'm afraid doing so, cause i'm pretty sure I'll need one to, cause the car is badly rusted. Speaking of what broke ur heart, is that alk you found? I mean ur bonninie is in NY and all u have rusted is bumper support? Ur pretty lucky if so. Have u checked rear strut tower sides closer to the rear? What about front subframe which suspenssion bolts on to? What about the rear subrame? And how about behind that damn ground effects undernease of the doors? Just curious, would be cool if u reply.

The car is originally from Lenox, South Dakota. She spent part of her life down in Florida as well where my uncle picked her up. My uncle being a mechanic did what needed to be done before delivering her to me. I didn't see much while under her. All it is really is the rear bumper support and I need rear shocks. That'* all my baby needs. My bumper is being held on by a single little screw. One nice hit or a bump will knock my bumper right off. I may need springs as well considering she bottoms out pulling out of every single lot. The exhaust scrapes and it breaks my heart a little bit at a time hearing it.
