you should be able to get a bumper from a salvage yard (in color too) for under $250 including shipping -check out www.car-part.com and see if there are any available.
I changed the rear bumper on my brothers old 1992 SSE and it took me all of 1 hr with basic hand tools.
Fairly easy job.
As for the exhaust, you should be able to get your Flowmaster, high flow cat, and high flow resonator for under $500, if you buy the muffler from jegs ($100 including shipping -I'd suggest a Magnaflow F-body muffler and high flow cat from www.justmagnaflow.com for under $150 including shipping), and then get a high flow resonator from a good exhaust shop (connect the Grand Prix club in your region and they should know of a good shop with good work and parts for cheap).

Good luck with everything. Also, for that price you might just pick up a good trunk and rear bumper from a 1996-1999 and get a new look. Should be able to get those for under $500 including the taillights.

we got $2450 for ours. and we got to keep the car. to bad the check went straight from insurance to seller of SHO which mind you was paid in full by this.

Got the check today. I talked it up $300 to $2750 I prolly won't get it fixed until after planting is done later in May, especially if i opt to fix it myself. I hope i can convince Dad to paint it for me...he does the best work i've ever seen. If i try to paint it i'll probably end up with a run, but i need the experience too.

Magnaflow or Flowmaster, that is the question.

Is that possible--Are the quarterpanel tailight moldings the same? The 92-5 tailights are my favorite.....if i can swap the trunk and tailights, i might eventually trade up to a 96+ and keep my trunk and tailights.

to do a 96+ swap you will need the taillights, trunk lid and trunk lights
