98 Zj front end rebuild Need ideas!

So the other weekend i crashed my 98 zj. (first jeep) slid in heavy snow down a steep embankment and busted up the front end on a tree. Started rebuild but i need ideas!

What ive done so far:
Fixed housing for headlights and grill
Bought headlight, and corner light, and mounted
Removed stock broken fog lights, i plan on remounting better ones soon
Banged the hood back into position some what
Repaired cracked grill, painted and remounted
Trimmed inner wheel well plastic crap.
Removed plastic bumper fascia and put immediately in trash

I cant afford a new bumper right now, I am considering painting the current bumper matte black to match grill.

Anyone have any other ideas for improving physical appearance?
Or any ideas on how to clean up that bumper fender area?

go to a jy, it's just a plastic cover over the bumper and shouldnt cost more than 20 bucks

if you lived closer and i still had my bumper cover i'd give you it. (i had two at one point)
