go see if the frame is bent before you make any rash decisions.

then go with what anstead said, get a fake MT2 front bumper... or a real one if you can afford it... not only will your car look newer and cooler, but you wont have to worry about mounting a diving board back to that screwed up mount

If the rear DB is tucked and painted it wouldn't look bad but i think a stock painted DB sticks out too far and would look awkward with a MT2

This idea may seem very stupid but you can try it. Get the mounting bracket for a plastic bumper. Actually get 2 and a plastic front or whatever front bumper you want (you will have to stick with it). Hammer that frame rail back to a usable rail like the passenger side. get the mount for the plastic/whatever bumper you want to run and place it as best you can like the passenger side and throw a couple tack welds in there. should hold and you might be able to hit the tack welds off if need be later down the road.

worst idea ever. tack welding is neve meant as a structural support and your umper would most likely fall off while driving. if you cut back your rail(which is a bad idea to begin with) get someone to fully weld on a new front piece so you dont have to rig any hazardouse parts to your front end .. because if i was driving behind your car and your bumper fell off and destroyed my car id be pissed.

in the pictures you posted the bumper is bent down and in .. seemingly bending the frame. get it checked by an actual shop.
