Starting the Rebuild Process - 06 Elise

Hey Guys,

Just purchased this vehicle, and I'm working through some of the things I need.
Looking for some advice mainly on this front clam and crashbox as they're the big issues.

It looks like I can get a crashbox from the UK for less than 1k shipped, so that was my plan.
And I think it would be cheapest to repair the rear clam, just reinforce it from the back and then sand it down / prime it.

How about the front clam? I don't think repair is even an option, but maybe if there's another broken clam out there I could use that to fix this one. Or just buy a refurbished OEM clam and if so, is this clam worth any money damaged?

If you guys know of anyone with the parts, please let me know. Would like to get this car put back together before the end of the summer.
