Default thinking of grafting a Mazda Protege 5 bumper onto a my car

I have a 1997 900, I will probably just go with a Talladega front lip...but a friend of mine owns a body shop and I have seen them do great work on bumpers. Im sure they could graft the bumper from another car onto mine. I have been playing with photoshop and I think a Mazda protege 5 bumper could look good if it was grafted seamlessly. Anyone thought of this? I wonder if it could be made to look factory.

I actually just sold my P5 for a 9-3. The P5 bumper is what sold me on the car. The front of the P5 is very square. Looking at my 9-3, I don't think that the corners could reach around the sides. I know that the bumper is a hard plastic, not flexible urathane. I don't think it could even be bent into a curve. Do you have any photoshop pictures?

It would look very cool if it could be done.

Speaking of modded bumpers, has anyone blended a grille and bumper togeather? I'd lik to find a junk yard or partially damaged 9-3 bumper to experiment on. I'd like to try to make a 9-5'ish bumper for the 9-3. Something they might have done if the NG9-3 stayed into production with the current 9-5.

Crude, but my first attempt.
