Wrecked GTO question

I hope this is the right topic to post this in.
Last year my 05 gto was involved in a front end collision. It was totaled bought it back because I wanted to fix it. The car runs fine I have drove it around the block to move it and it is perfect.

How should I go about fixing it? Should I buy piece by piece and put it on? OR should I just try to find a roller and just move motor/tranny over. . .
If I just buy the damaged parts or a whole new front clip, how difficult would it be to 'put' it on.

That would take a lot from the look of it. A front clip or whole roller looks like the way to go

If I were to get a front clip, how would I put it on? The body shops close to me aren't that great. . .

I don't know of any other way other than taking it to a shop or doing it yourself.....unless you've got friends or relatives that could do it.

Buying a used front clip would be the way to go.
